I am new to this. My grandson's preschool hatched baby chicks, now I am the proud owner of 9 beautiful baby chicks 4 weeks old. They are rapidly growing. I want to raise my chickens without antibiotics and the such... but would like some information on other everyday food that the chicks might enjoy. I gave them some leftover rice the other day and they just loved it! It was like watching a soccer game... the way they chased each other grabbing the food..Please post some helpful information... Our coop is in the planning stages now.. they are still under the red heat light but it is up higher.. do I still need that too? Some nights are cool here in Michigan.
