Am I good to go with chicks when they get here? My only foray into chicks was in the 1980"s. I have chicks arriving the end of the week so want to be prepared. So I have a big cardboard box with about 2" of pine shaving litter, a screened top, a metal jar waterer, a metal jar feeder, chick feed, heat lamp and secured with 2 methods. I need to get a thermometer yet and a bag of chick grit which I will get tomorrow. The brooder is in my laundry room in the basement that I can close off from my cat. I will test the temp once I get the thermometer and adjust the heat lamp appropriately. My house has central air so cool in the basement.
