We do chicks every year, you need to get a heating lamp and some baby chick food. You should keep them warm and away from anthing that might think that they are food. They will need fresh water. Other than that they are very easy to keep. You should keep them in a box or a small container for the time being, they grow very fast though so don't go and buy something special to keep them in, they will double their size in a week!! Good Luck

Glad she took it back. You will need to move her entire nest though, in a day or two she'll want to take the chicks out to roam around and they have to be able to get in and out of the nest.

You need to go buy "chick starter" food. I prefer non-medicated, some do use medicate though, just read the bags. A clean source of water than the chick CANNOT drown in as well.

Your local feed shop should have these lil plastic feeders. They call them "mason jar feeders" but they are all plastic. Look like a white plastic jar that screws into a brightly colored bottom, one with holes and you use it for feed, another will have a moat around the bottom and that is for water.

Also when you have little chickies, stick rocks in the moat of water. When they're that young, they can still drown in the small amount of water so putting rocks in there, spaced enough apart to where a chick can't fit between them, will help prevent. Also to encourage eating, sprinkle some fruit loops over the food. They love the bright colors, and will snatch up the feed when they go for the fruit loops. I raised turkeys for FFA, and my largest turkey was 35 pounds DRESSED. That thing weighed about 55-60 pounds. Imagine holding that sucker up by its legs for the judge to fondle.
