    don't tell my wife or she'll intentionally give them worms to stop the crowing.

    I give chicks medicated feed and usually keep em in the house for close to 4 weeks then they go straight to a pen with straw. It's difficult to keep them in the house that long and a ton of work. It's mostly because of the cold though. I don't use any lights of any kind outside.
