Hello, I will soon be owning a few chicks. I am going to be doing this for the first time and want to be as prepared as possible. First, I was wondering what kind of bedding I should use. I have heard nothing but good things about sand, so I am leaning towards that. The only problem is I have not been able to find construction sand. Another thing I was concerned about was vaccinations for the chicks. Do they need it? What do you need them vaccinated for? Can most vets vaccinate chicks? How old do they have to be? It seems like chicks can take a lot of time. How frequently must they be checked on? What are some of the things to look out for (health wise)? What kind of supplies do you need? Any other things I should know? Please give some of your input. I really appreciate it.
