OK! So, this is going to be my first time raising chickens! I've already raised quail, but in the brooder, many died. I'd like to be a little bit clearer with my chickens because I'm only going to be ordering a few. So, the breeds I've ordered as pets are 2 Blue Cochins, 1 Easter Egger, 1 Easter Egger Bantam, and 1 Buff Orpington. The meat chickens are 2 Rhode Island Reds, 2 Autralorps, and 1 Sicillian Buttercup. So, in total I'll have ten babies coming April 17. I REALLY NEED BROODER IDEAS BECAUSE RIGHT NOW I HAVE NONE!! I'll be placing them in the boiler room with a heat lamp, but I also don't know what feed is best. And these chickens will be able to eat the same feed when they get older, right? Also, I need ideas on DIY feeders and waterers. Best bedding? OK, more questions to come, but answer these first. Thanks!!
