My 6 barred rocks are scheduled to ship today from Meyers, and should arrive between tomorrow and thursday! Hopefully closer to tomorrow than thursday. I am so excited! My kids are totally stoked and have been asking me continuously when they will be here. We are nearly done with the coop, only a few more days of work including painting. The brooder is set up in my office next to my room and I went to the feed store this weekend to get some supplies. We chose to use organic chick starter and we also got grit and organic scratch. Do the baby chicks get the scratch and grit? Or should we wait to give them these when they get a bit older? Also I have read that sometimes after shipping the chicks should get some electrolytes (especially in the heat)....should I try to give them a little gatorade? or pedialyte? So is anyone else getting their chicks this week?
