Just like a child, what you feed them when they arrive is very important to their growth and well-being. Do not forget to refill their feeders and waterers. Introduce them to water as soon as they arrive.
Visit the brooder house regularly and check for sick and dead chicks. Also, clean the environment.
Protect them against predators like dogs and snakes. Keep the brooder house safe and well ventilated as well.
The suppliers will also give you a guide to how to care for them. Follow it strictly so as not to make losses. The poultry business is very lucrative. If you are thinking about starting a poultry farm, you can make so much money out of it.
Depending on the breed of chicken you choose, how you take care of them, and who you distribute them to, you can get rich owning a poultry farm. Good luck!
