    am i correct in these things:-

    1) i should set up the brooder as i'm on day 19?
    2) newspaper then wood shavings then kitchen paper on the floor of brooder?
    3) temp should be approx 95 under lamp?
    4) leave chicks in bator for 24hours before moving to brooder?

    Quote:The rocks or marbles in the waterer are to keep the chicks from falling in and drowning when they are younger.
