chicks are on the way home..

Discussion in 'Raising Baby Chicks' started by babychickfarmer, May 20, 2008.

  1. We weren't expecting them for another three days (12 little new fuzzy bums.) so we are kinda unprepared. I was wondering about maybe making a homemade waterer/feeder any ideas?? and can someone tell me the temperatures they are going to need for the next weeks.

    For a waterer you could use a shallow dish with marbles in it. That way they couldnt drown. and for a feeder a very shallow bowl or pan would work. I sometimes use the shallow boxes from the Walmart meat department the ones pork comes in I use them for feeding greens to my geese too.
