We just got 4 baby chicks from Ideal Hatchery. We have them in the brooder box with light on. 2 are 1 week old and 2 are 2 weeks old. When and how can I wean them off of the brooder light? Can I give them any "treats" besides their organic chick feed? When can I put then outside to start getting used to the outdoors? At what age to I change their feed and do you have suggestions for an organic feed?
