    My new chicks are finally here. They seem to be eating and drinking well. I am surprised at how aggressive they are...pecking at each other and fighting for food.
    Anyway, I will never again order chicks when it is cold at night. I am going to have to regulate the temp. in the brooder which is outside. Outside temp. is about 55 at night and 80-90 during the day. I got alot of help from this forum and I wanted to thank you all. Will keep you posted and upload pics as soon as possible.
    God bless and have a great day !![​IMG]

    Congrats on new Iddy's. Just supply some heat & they should be fine. I brood mine outside in colder weather than your talking about. Keep them out of the wind. Good luck!!
