New Chicks

You may start there home off in a cardboard box

If you are raising just a few. A cage suitable for a rabbit is great and easy to clean . The bottom should have a layer of clean litter, pine shavings works great.

The litter should be changed out every couple of days, and never allowed to remain damp - cleanliness is VERY important at this stage. Baby chicks are prone to a number of diseases, most of which can be avoided with proper

sanitation.

The Box or "Brooder" size depends on how many chicks you have - the chicks should have enough room to move around, and to lay down and sleep. You also need to have enough space in it for a waterer and a feeder .

When the chicks are a month old, add a low roost - a stick or piece of wood dowelling about 4" off the floor of the brooder. The chicks will jump on it and may even begin sleeping there. Don't put the roost directly under the light, it will be too hot.

If using a cardboard box be careful of the light or heat lamp for safety and fire prevention also watching the

temperature not to hurt the chicks .
