Raising Healthy Chickens

We got our first batch of chicks two days ago. They are very cute at this age and of course all we want to do is hold them. Hear the boys and I explain what the chicks need to be healthy at this age.

To get a healthy start, the chicks will need a mixed feed of variety of grains, clean water and of course a very warm (90 degrees) room. In a few weeks they will have their feathers. Then we will move them out to their pasture home to live until they are market age.
