Hatch day is supposed to be Monday and chicks are supposed to arrive between Tuesday and Thursday. I have all my supplies, I think. Feeders, waterers, heat lamps, bedding, safe and draft-free space, electrolyte packets recommended by the lady at Tractor Supply. How soon do I put the bedding in the brooder and turn on the heat lamps? Do I *need* the electrolyte solution (MPC says no, other chicken-keepers say yes) and if so, when do I mix that up? Also, I split an order with a friend. She wants to sort the chicks at the post office and take them straight home, but I think we should bring them all to my house (I live closer to the post office) and let them eat and drink before she takes her six home. Opinions?
