    Plenty of chick starter and water. Keep their food and water free from foreign material. Keep them at the recomended temperature for their age. A few (3-5) degrees cooler won't hurt them but too hot can be devistating. Best if they have a warm area and a cooler one so they can regulate their own temperature. Keep their bedding reasonably clean. Give them all the room you can. Read the forums and articles in the learning center and ask questions about anything you are uncertain of. It ain't rocket science so relax and enjoy you little ones while they are little, they won't be that way for long.
