    [​IMG] and [​IMG] from Ohio. Make sure you set up your brooder before they arrive. You will need a heat lamp and therometer so the chicks will have around 95 degrees to start with. Raise and lower as needed. Have the proper kind of feed for chicks, and dip their beaks in the water as soon as they arrive. Good luck. Oh and take picsl [​IMG]
