Before buying chicks you will need to have set up and ready:
Heat source for the first 6-8 weeks - Ideally an electric hen which provides a natural type of rearing heat for the chicks as well as being very low wattage and safe to use inside. Heat lamps with a minimum 150 watt infra red bulb can also be used, ideally we do not advise a white light which is stressful for the growing chicks and they don't get used to the darkness.
