To recap, while buying buying chicks at the farm store or online might be a simple task, their care once they arrive at your doorstep is more involved. Make sure you have a simple, warm setup when they first arrive. If you have adult chickens and other animals, create separate spaces for the new chicks. Be wary of dangers such as open water pans, deep bedding and housecats. Nip any chicken bullying in the bud immediately. While raising chicks is more work than buying pullets, it is certainly fun and well worth the effort.
