    You first need a broader. I use a storage bucket. Water food and a heat lamp. When you get baby chicks they need to be at 90 to 95 degrees. The first week and decreasing 5 degrees every week. Getting a feeder for chicks is best because baby chicks can drown in a bowl. Ace or big r is great I hope this helps have fun

    Better yet, provide one spot that is 95 degrees F and lots of cool space. That's what a broody hen does.
