    hello everyone im new to the baby chick world any advice would be fantastic on raising my new additions right now I have them in a Tupperware tub that's long a deep and a 60 watt reptile bulb chick starter and plenty of water and pine bedding on the bottom hopefully that's sufficient for them for now

    Welcome to BYC. One bit of advice - start on the permanent coop. They will soon outgrow that brooder.

    Also put a wire top on it, babies starting flying early. If they fly or fall out - they won't know how to get back in. The top will also hopefully keep pets out.
