My family and I just got 7 chicks about 2 weeks ago. They are about 8 weeks old. We built a real nice coop and all but I don't have a clue on how to raise them, never owned chicks... We could use some helpful tips if anyone can give any... I believe we have 4 females and 3 males... We want to know what they like to eat besides small bird feed, why do they dig themselves into the dirt like they are in a bird bath, how to tell the differance in m/f, do we have 2 many males? simple questions i guess but just a few questions that I have on the top of my head... Thanks a bunch and I am glad to have found this site...
