hi there, i am a newbie that needs a little advice. First i should say i love this site and have found so much great advice here. My 4 chicks - "brown layers" from the feed store - are a week and half old. i am keeping their box clean (although they need to move out soon and in to a bigger home), i make sure their food (medicated chick starter) is clean and full and clean and fill their water (plain tap) a few time a day. They have wood (pine) shavings for bedding and a red heat lamp i am gradually moving farther and farther away. I have noticed a lot more "racket" coming from their box. i think they are just getting overcrowded and hope i will have a bigger cage by tomorrow for them. Is there anything else i should be doing? - any other reason they may be upset? oh - we also put a little roost in there for them which i occasionally see one of them up on. Any advice is appreciated. Also - do you know what kind of chicken a "brown layer" is??
