I always got chicks from the hatchery or feed store, so what is the procedure with hatchlings from your own incubator. Do I need to dip their beak and such? Do I need special medicated feed, or do I need to give any shots :O

Go to BYC Learning center and read Hatching, and Raising young chicks sections.
mypetchicken.com also has a great online e-book on raising chicks.
