Wow - I'm getting my first shipment of baby chicks on March 11 - I have never done this before and now I'm getting worried... I ordered some of the vitamin/electrolyte stuff, but what's all this about boots? I'm getting 45 of the little guys (30 for me, 12 for a friend, and 3 for my sister) and I'll receive them all at my house first. So it is up to ME to keep them all alive! I have never done this before, I know about the light, the temperature, and giving them the starter electrolyte stuff. I understand that they are baby chicks and will have just been shipped by mail, and I may have casualties. But what's this about boots? I can surmise that they are for straightening out their feet if they are curling too much, but how to make them? Can you buy them? Are they REALLY necessary for the chick or is this just a cosmetic thing for show birds? What else do I need to know for my first batch of babies? HELP!
