I just picked up my first chicks today. They will be one week tomorrow. I have them in a large plastic tote with a Momma heating pad. They went under it just fine. I decided to check on them and the temperature. Well, it was way too hot, (100F) on the thermometer. I would have thought that they would come out. Anyway, I raised the pad up a bit and lowered the temperature. Now they just want to sleep on the top all sprawled out. I hope I am doing this right. I have not had baby chicks before. Also, at least one of them has a bit of diarrhea. Is that normal from the stress of moving? They have been eating and drinking so that is good.
