    Hi all, been reading up the past few days and today i bought 13 little chicks from tsc. 10 were supposed to be red pullets, so we will see. the other 3 are some kind of yellow chicks that were straight run. got them set up for now but think i need a bigger brooder, using a old fish tank atm that they will outgrow quick! These are my first chickens so im excited!

    As soon as my post count is up a little more I will be able to add some pics, anyone know what the magic number is? I have already moved them to a bigger container as the fish tank kept getting smaller every time I looked at it. another quick question, I have read to put the feeder and waterer on blocks but the only blocks I have right now are treated. Is there anything that could happen using treated lumber to put the feed on? Im assuming not because a coop would be made using treated, just want to make sure

    Treated wood is fine as long as you are not "Organic". Some wood in my coop is treated and they are fine!

    Im not so much organic as I am non-GMO. My food comes from animals and plants not from a lab! got some chick starter to start with but when I buy again going to do my best to stay with non-gmo feeds
