I have 5 two day old chicks. I'm not sure exactly the breed but I know they are mixed with several breeds. I joined so I could ask for advise on how to provide these babies with the best care. They are all doing okayy at the moment. I have them in a plastic tote with chicken wire on top with a heat lamp. They have water and feed in there with them. Some seem interest others not. I think I will introduce them to it this morning so everybody's on the same page. They're in my room for now. I just got them last night and hadn't really thought it out yet. They are very noisy lol. They didn't sleep much last night and neither did I. I have heard that if you switch to a darker bulb at night they will calm down more or a heat pad under the tote. They're so little that I rather not keep them where I can see them because I do have cats and dogs. Any advise would be appreciated thanks!
