I purchased 6 NJ giants Saturday, made a tote into their brroder, added heat lamp, etc. They ate 3 feeder full of starter Sunday, and they are all pretty happy. I turned the lamp off last night to sleep, they seemed to be fine it was around 82 in the house. This morning everyone seemed refreshed and happy. Fresh water and starter, should I leave it in all day and night? I am so confused. I picked up one of my chicks and noticed a big lump on the side of her neck; should I be worried? She is the smallest one in the group, but she eats all the time. They are pecking at little knats flying outside their home, they have wing feathers and act like they are ready to fly. I do't know how old they are but they are feathering out. So, how warm should I keep them. Everything a new mommie needs to know. My 2 hens and roo are doing great, by the way. Thanks for any help, Aimie Sorry for the double post, computer acting crazy.
