    I work full time and will not be able to get there until 5:30 Wednesday night.[​IMG] I hope I'll still have my pickings of chicks that I want.
    I have a few questions: I purchased orange guard and DE for precautions.Has anyone used orange guard?
    I'm starting my chiks on Dumor chick starter feed. Seems like a good brand of feed. Any comments. It says you do not need additional vitamins or minerals. Wonder if I should still buy chick grit:rolleyes:or some extra vitamins and minerals.
    What about a wormguard?
    Please help this new mommy:eek:

    you don't need grit if all they are eating is the feed. I don't think you need to worry about worming untill they go outside. The DE is it food grade? If not it's toxic don't use it. If it is yay for you, It's hard to find with out ordering it. food grade DE sould take care of worming for you aswell as doing other good stuff. mix it with the feed. some kind of vitamine and electrolites in the water is a good idea too. never tried the orange blast.
