It’s chick season and we’ve got 2 chick deliveries coming up in March at J&N Feed and Seed. Spring chicks arrive on March 13th and March 22nd. Chicks will be available by noon on the dates listed. We recommend calling the store before you head over to confirm delivery. All baby chicks are pullets, 90% accuracy unless otherwise noted.
New to raising chicks? Prepare for your backyard flock with these great tips from Purina.
Raising chickens is a great experience for the whole family. One of the primary requirements is providing housing that is comfortable for your backyard flock. Young chicks can be raised in a variety of structures, but the area should be warm, dry and ventilated, but not drafty. Also, make sure it is easy to clean.
Small numbers of chicks can be warmed adequately with heat lamps placed about 20 inches above the litter surface.
- Bigger groups of birds in a large room, such as a shed or a garage, should have a supplemental heat source such as a brooder stove.
Several days in advance, thoroughly clean and disinfect the brooder house and any equipment the chicks will use. Doing this in advance will allow everything to dry completely. Dampness is a mortal enemy to chicks, resulting in chilling and encouraging disease such as coccidiosis (parasite infection).
- When the premises are dry, place 4 to 6 inches of dry litter material (wood shavings or a commercial litter) on the floor.
Feeders and Waterers
It’s important to ensure your chicks have access to fresh feed and water. Positioning the feeders and waterers along the edges of the comfort zone will:
- Keep the water and feed from being overheated
- Help keep water and feed cleaner (chicks milling and sleeping under the warmth source often scatter bedding and feces)
- Encourage the chicks to move around and get exercise
Be sure to have plenty of fresh feed and water when the chicks arrive:
- At least two 1-quart or one 1-gallon waterer for every 25 to 50 chicks
- Dip the beaks of several chicks into the water to help them locate it. These chicks will teach the rest.
- Day 1: Use clean egg flats, shallow pans or simple squares of paper with small piles of feed on them.
- Day 2: Add proper feeders to the pens.
- A few days later: Remove the messy papers, pans or egg flats once chicks have learned to eat from the feeders.
- Should be emptied, scrubbed, rinsed and refilled daily
- Wet litter around waterers should be removed as often as possible. Dampness encourages disease and parasite transmission. The drier the premises, the healthier and happier the chicks.
- At about 4 weeks of age, ducks and geese will appreciate a swimming area, but you will need to keep the wet litter cleaned up.
- In winter months, you may need to purchase a water heater to prevent water from freezing.
- Feeders and waterers can be moved outward from the heat source, expanding their area of activity and helping keep the feeders and waterers clean.
- As the birds grow, the feeders and waterers should be adjusted to the height of the back of a standing bird. This will help decrease contamination and minimize wastage
Feeding your chicks
It is important to select a complete feed that gives your chicks all the nutrition they need to grow into healthy hens. Once they’ve reached maturity,a high-quality complete layer feed will help to maximize egg production and quality. If they are broiler chicks, choose a feed designed to support their more rapid growth. Layer chicks will reach egg-laying age at about 18 to 20 weeks; broiler chicks will reach market weight at 8 to 10 weeks.
You may also consider occasional supplements to their diets, such as table scraps, scratch grains, oyster shell, and grit. However, supplemental feeds should make up no more than 10 percent of a hen’s diet.
Purina offers a complete line of poultry feeds appropriate for each bird in your flock. A list of Purina products can be found here.
Lighting and heating for your chicks
A thermometer should be placed at the chicks’ level to accurately gauge temperature.
- Adjust the brooder stove and/or heat lamps 24 hours in advance so that upon the chicks’ arrival, you’ve created a comfort zone that is 90º F at “chick level.”
- For turkey chicks, the comfort zone should be 100º F.
- Use a brooder guard (a plastic, cardboard or wire barrier) for a few days to encircle the brooding area so that the chicks don’t wander too far from the warmth.
- Once chicks have learned where the heat is, remove or expand the guard. This will allow the chicks to escape the heat if necessary. Getting overheated can be as dangerous as getting chilled.
- Chicks that huddle under the lamp are too cold. Chicks that sprawl along the brooder guard is too hot. Chicks happily milling around all portions of the brooder area are comfortable.
- The temperature can be gradually reduced by 5º F per week to a minimum of 55º F.
Even after your chicks have grown into hens, keep a standard old-fashioned 40-watt incandescent light bulb handy; or, if you’re using the new energy-efficient bulbs, a 28-watt halogen, 10-watt compact fluorescent, or 8-watt LED bulb, to maintain the artificial light necessary for egg laying to continue through the winter months.

Join J&N Feed and Seed and Purina Cattle Specialist, Chad Brown for a Cattle Mineral Meeting on Wednesday, February 28, 2018, at noon. Learn more about cattle minerals and have lunch with us right here at the store, located at 450 Pecan St, Graham, TX 76450.
You probably know it’s important to feed your cattle a well-balanced mineral supplement, but you might not know why it is. Cattle with mineral shortages or imbalances do poorly in reproduction, lactation, weight gains, body condition, etc. – all the factors that affect your profitability. But most mineral deficiencies don’t show obvious symptoms until it’s too late, and without good records, it’s hard to identify a gradual decline in cattle performance.
Please RSVP for this Cattle Mineral Workshop by calling J&N Feed and Seed at (940) 549-4631.
The Great Backyard Bird Count 2018 kicks off February 16-19, 2018, and is one birding activity that can be done from literally anywhere on the planet. Join hundreds of thousands of people of all ages and walks of life to create a snapshot of birds across the world. All you have to do is spend 15 minutes tallying the numbers and types of birds you see on one or more of the days of the count. You can count birds at your local park, nearby wildlife reserve, or your own backyard. To find out more information on The Great Backyard Bird Count 2018 and sign up, click here.
WHY COUNT BIRDS?
Scientists and bird enthusiasts can learn a lot by knowing where the birds are. Bird populations are dynamic; they are constantly in flux. No single scientist or team of scientists could hope to document and understand the complex distribution and movements of so many species in such a short time.
Scientists use the GBBC information, along with observations from other citizen-science projects, such as the Christmas Bird Count, Project FeederWatch, and eBird, to get the “big picture” about what is happening to bird populations. The longer these data are collected, the more meaningful they become in helping scientists investigate far-reaching questions, like these:
- How will the weather influence bird populations?
- Where are winter finches and other “irruptive” species that appear in large numbers during some years but not others?
- How will the timing of birds’ migrations compare with past years?
- How are bird diseases, such as West Nile virus, affecting birds in different regions?
- What kinds of differences in bird diversity are apparent in cities versus suburban, rural, and natural areas?
The Great Backyard Bird Count is led by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and National Audubon Society, with Canadian partner Bird Studies Canada and sponsorship from Wild Birds Unlimited.
