I'm planning on buying some baby chicks to raise but I'm unsure what age is best to start with. This would be our first flock but we have kept other birds. I have found a reputable supplier, recommend by friends, who has a variety of breeds. They sell chicks at range of ages starting at 1 day old. I would like to raise them from a reasonably young age so we can tame them. Are we better off with day old chicks or slightly older more robust ones? Any recommendations? I have read up about rearing baby chicks and we'll be organising a heat lamp, feeders etc before purchasing.
