I just got my new chicks (2 each of BR, RIR, and Ameraucana). Everyone is getting along so far. The feed store sure doesn't know how to make money, though. They ordered the chicks but didn't have any feeders, waterers, or..... starter crumble! For now, I'm grinding up layer pellets and supplementing with cockroaches and cane spiders, for protein. Is there anything else I should give the chicks that the layer pellets are missing? Sorry, no pics... but chicks are chicks are chicks... I'm using recycled paper mill waste for litter. The pack says its safe and made for animal litter. So far so good.
