Temperature: Poultry Chicks need heating up to the age of 4 weeks depending on weather conditions. The best form of heating can be achieved with an Infra Red Heating Lamp ( approx 1 lamp per hundred chicks), the lamp should hang roughly 50 cm from the floor of whatever enclosure the chicks are housed in. Chicks should spread out evenly when the correct temperature has been reached; see diagram below. Feeding: Feed chicks starter crumble to 4 weeks. Growing Meal 1 -5 months, then Laying Pellets Water: A Clean source of drinking water must be available at all times; see diagram.
