Before the chicks arrive, the brooding room must be cleaned and disinfected as a whole, and fumigation can be used for disinfection. Utensils should also be disinfected and ventilated. After two days, the chicks can be brought in. Chicks are not very resistant, so disinfection is very important.

Drink water:

After the chicks have just hatched, the most important thing is not to give them food, but to let them drink some water first. In this case, they are also good for their stomachs and stomachs and let them expel meconium quickly. It is recommended to buy chickens near the local place. If they are transported over long distances, it is easy to have a stress reaction. And the drinking water must be warm water at room temperature, do not give chicks cold water.

Start eating:

Within 24 hours after the chicks are out of the shell, do not feed them first, otherwise, it will cause a burden on the stomach, and then wait 24 hours before feeding them. In the beginning, you can eat some millet, crushed corn and the like. In the first few days, you can cook it a little and then feed it. In this case, it is better for digestion. Then after two or three days, you can use the feed specially for the chicks. Feed them about five times a day. Do not add too much at one time, and feed the chicks with fresh feed.

After four days, you can eat some vegetable leaves in the feed, and it must be cut into pieces. It is important to pay attention to the matching of this feed. If there are some retail chickens, they will eat the same thing every time, so the nutrition is very single, and it is not good for the growth of chicks.


Because the chicks are relatively small and their calories are not high, the temperature must be raised at the beginning to keep the temperature at 33-35 degrees at 1--3 days old, and then decline by 2--3 degrees every week, and at 27-day 18- -28 degrees, and then observe the chicks' response to this temperature. If they think this temperature is more appropriate, then their spirit should be better, they will not be grouped together, and the feathers will look good. Then it drops two to three degrees every week until it stays stable for 21 degrees. The key is to see the chicken's temperature.
