ok so im getting (hopefully) five, month old silkie chicks, should i still put them in a brooder?
Quote:Yes. Most regular chicks need extra heat til they are fully feathered at around 8-10 weeks. Silkies are more delicate. Read: pain in the butt chickens. I would brood them til 10 weeks at a minimum.
ok, thank you very much
