Ok, so i'm new to the board! Little background info: I'm 18 years of age, I was introduced to chickens at the age of 5 or 6...I have been obsessed ever since (I hear this is normal?). I have 44 chickens, including 4 phesants whom i raised but come and go periodicly. I do most of the care taking myself, i pay for feed, i built my cages, I care for my birds. My dad got me hooked on poultry at a young age...he taught me alot about these creatures. Sadly, he passed away a couple months back. I live in Albuquerque, NM....my birds run free range in a 2 and a half acre backyard..except for the game birds (they fight ).... anyway... I ORDERED FROM IDEAL!! I ordered from them before, there amazing! However, i ordered a very large number this time...38 to be exact. There due to ship Wednesday 3/26 Why so many? You Already have about 50!!! Well, dangit. I ordered from ideal with the intent to get some new trios. Then while looking at ideal's website, It hit me like a ton of bricks...i had no bantams..So i caved, I had to order a flock of little silkies!!!PLUS, i have an extra cage! Since my birds go free range I have plenty of space....So i picked up some breeds i have never had...In the end I ordered 38...im way to nervous. (What if they get lost in the mail?) (What if the PO doesnt call?) (What if I missing something!) Everyone's help and or tips are greatly appreciated! I have Never raised this many babys myself, usually my hens do all the work..i just provided food, water, shelter. Now this is what I have ready to go....I built a brooder 3 feet wide, about 5 feet long, and 3 feet high. Seems to be lots of floor space. Is that good for 38 chicks? I have a lamp with one of those red bulbs i usually use for my chicks, will one lamp be enough to heat the size of my brooder to 95 degrees for the chicks? I have several feeders, and water things. Lots of pine shavings, i use that stuff in all my coops. Im going later today to get some chick starter.... Now, i have sucessfully raised baby chicks many times, been through the good and the bad... but never have I done this many at one time.....I know these little dudes are delicate, so I dont want to make a small mistake that could spell doom.....I invested alot into this order! BTW, this board is awesome! Im so glad i found it!
