In the Brooder
- Jan 20, 2016
I recently had the pleasure of getting my first baby chicks. Three Rhode island reds and two Barred Rocks. I live in Arizona where it is quite dry and like keeping a humidifier with essential oils (for a nice smell) in the room where I now house my chicks. I stopped using the humidifier prior to putting the chicks in the room and haven't used it sinceI am probably being neurotic, but I would like to be safe than sorry. Would the use of the humidifier and essential oils be bad for the chicks health? Any thoughts or experiences on this would be highly appreciated.
