Your basic supplies you need will be something to keep them in. A box works well. Find one of appropriate size depending on how many your getting. They need room to grow. Rubbermaid containers work well also.
Litter - pine shaving works best, some use straw
Feed- chick starter is all you need
Heat source- chicks need 95 degrees to start/ need therometer. I use a red 250watt heat lamp.
Waterer with some marbles or stones in the tray to keep chicks from falling in and drowning.
I also put a window screen over the top to protect from any dangers.Good Luck!

Well, hello!

I am a newbie myself (the chickens haven't even gotten here yet!)

But I found that this page and the pages it links to were invaluable in preparing for the chickies!

As far as where to get chicken supplies, I've been having luck at the local Agway and feed stores. They seem to have everything.

edited to add: *shakes fist at Rooster Red* I'm trying to be helpful over here and you go stealing my thunder! Hrmph.
