I gave in to cuteness. Granted it means a lot longer before we get any eggs, but I couldn't resist trying my hand at chicks. I forgot to grab hardware cloth while I was out, so for now it is coverless. How long will it be ok this way before they can jump/fly out? I believe the bin is 20" deep. They've got medicated starter, water, and chick grit. Two clamp lights - one is a bright daylight bulb from my light box, since the heat light bulb didn't seem to be warming it up very much. All they had for those was 50w bulbs, and at 20" up it just didn't seem all that warm. Should I make a roost of some sort, or will the be fine until they're a bit older? Anything else I should add/change?
