Hey there experienced chick-raisers! I am hoping for some insightful tips and tricks for that moment when I have my peeping, tired, stressed chicks to take care of after their journey in the mail. I also hope this benefits other people who are ordering their first flock through the mail! For example: I have read that to help prevent pasty butt and to also make sure the chicks don't over-drink, introduce them to the water, let them drink for 15 minutes, and then take away the waterer for about 15 minutes, and then put it back in. Also, I have also read to use paper towels or that non-slip stuff you put in your pantries for the first week, and then introduce wood chips to the floor. Anyone care to share their tips or tricks for raising up strong, healthy chicks? What about vitamins in the water or sugar? What do you do that seems to work well with your day-old chicks?
