The Care and Feeding of Baby Chicks + Giveaway Winner Announced
Chickens make great pets and are easier than most other pets to raise. However, new chicks are very fragile and need special care to survive. They are shipped from hatcheries just after hatching and the travels are hard on the new babies. It’s not uncommon for some of the chicks to die during the trip or be “on the way out’ upon arrival and in the days after bringing them home. They go without food or water for a day or longer during shipping and often go through weather they cannot handle. So it’s important they get the attention they need immediately after arriving at your home or feed store.
I have created a printable page here with more information on how to care for baby chicks.
