I have LOVED having baby chicks (so did my kids!). Here is an awesome guide to how to raise baby chicks - perfect for the total beginner.

    Chicken Brooder made out of an old dresser I had stored in the barn, complete with ventilation, Brooder light, Hinged top with handle, and plexiglass front for easy viewing of your chicks
