Got the new babies yesterday, 4 Barred Rocks and 4 Dark Brahmas. We actually started last fall with fully grown birds 4 Dark Brahmas (1 Roo), 6 RIR, and 1 French Moran. All seem to be doing well, 2 cases of pasty butt but took care of that right away. Got ours from local feed store. This is my first time with chicks and have them in temporary cardboard brooder box for now. I have a brooder lamp set up and stressing out over getting the temperature right. The store recommended 95 for the first week, decreasing by 5 degrees per week. At 95 they were doing everything they could to stay away from the heat. I raised the light and now have it about 90. They still seem to like the edges of the box better than being under the light.
