Tips for Healthy Chicken
Observe proper nutrition. Also, Chickens must always have access to water because they drink in small increments throughout the day. They need
water in order to digest properly, and if a hen is deprived of water, she will become dehydrated and it will impair her ability to lay eggs.
• Provide spacious coops with adequate ventilation and never mix chicks or growing birds with adults.
• Do not house new chickens in facilities previously used by another ock until the facilities have been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. If you must
mix birds of another ock with your existing ock, quarantine the new birds for a few weeks to ensure they are disease free.
• Vaccinate against disease common to your area and avoid exposing your ock to wild birds and vermin. Isolate sick birds from the rest of your ock.
• Do not indiscriminately administer antibiotics as a preventative health care practice and bring any health concerns to the attention of your veterinarian.
Chick Care Tips
• Water: Have fresh water available at all times. Use a shallow dish or a water fount specically designed for baby chicks.
• Heat: Baby chicks need heat to thrive. Hang a heat lamp with a 250 watt bulb over the brooder and observe their behavior. Cold chicks will huddle
together under the lamp, while hot chicks will spread out away from the lamp. Chicks that are comfortable will move around happily.
• Chicks that had a hard trip home: If your chicks need a little “pick me up,” mix them up a special treat. Take sugar water (6 tablespoons of sugar per 1
gallon of water) and add it to their feed, making a soupy mix. Give them this mix for 3 or 4 days to get them over the stress of shipping.
• Pasting up: Sometimes manure can stick to a chick’s rear end. It is important to remove this daily by washing it o- with a warm, wet paper towel.
Chicks will quickly outgrow this in about a week.
• Picking: Chicks will often pick on each other if they are too hot, too crowded, or without fresh air.
