You know how you get all that info on the internet about how to care for chicks and chickens, I wonder why none of it actually applies to me. - there is the rule about don't let your chicks outside till their fully featherd and keep an eye out for predators. As soon as Feathers and Eggie were two weeks old we let them free range and didn't really need to keep an eye on them. they were fine. - there's also what says about putting marbles in the waterer to stop chicks drowning. I never did and we have the HUGEST bowl and the chicks never drowned. - i heard something about never feeding your chicken grass cuttings. Ours ate about a thousand huge pieces of long grass and they were fine. - heat lamps. Ours never had heat lamps since we got them (two weeks old). they were fine there's plenty more. I dunno. what are your thoughts?
