Baby chicks are extremely delicate and need to be handled just right to ensure they thrive in their new environment. In this video, we’re showing you everything you need to consider before bringing your chicks home, including how to set up a brood coop and how to properly handle the chicks once they arrive.

In this video, you’ll see our Freedom Ranger chicks and watch everything we do for them from the minute they arrive to the homestead.
