My first post as a chicken farmer. My care package from Meyer showed up yesterday via priority mail. Roll call was perfect with the exception of one extra J. Giant female. My first flock consists of : Black J. Giants-6F,2M / Buckeyes-6F,2M / Dominique- 6F / Speck.Sussex- 6F, GL Wyandot, 4F. Started them on Chick Saver electrolytes and probiotics. They are living on my covered back porch in a 3' x8' cattle tank with a homemade Mama style heated cave. I haven't been able get them too interested in the cave yet, since it was 84F yesterday, and 92 today. All seem healthy and chipper. Actually, if they were any more energetic, I would be afraid of them breaking through the tank. A couple questions (for now). 1- How long do they need to be on the electrolytes and probiotics, 2- Is there any benefit from fermenting their chick starter this soon? Thanks for any assistance, and a huge thanks to the folks who put out this great feast of chicken knowledge.
