    brantchickens Out Of The Brooder

    Hi, I am picking up 3 week old bielefelder chicks this coming weekend and what just wondering what people recommend for waterers and feeders for chicks this age. Also my brooder will be a plastic tote that's in my house and was wondering if I would need a heat lamp. Thanks

    Unless you keep your house at 85 degrees you probably should have a heat lamp.
    When their that small you should have either a bowl with rubber bands on it, so they can't get in the water or food. or a one gallon water-er no bigger, and for the food dish they can't drown in food so the size of that doesn't really matter.[​IMG]
