A brooder/heat lamp is one of the most important items you need. Baby chicks must be kept at a certain temperature in order to survive. We sell clear or red bulbs for the lamp. A thermometer is also needed to make sure its not too cold or too hot.

Chick Boost Probiotic

Chick Boost contains probiotics, vitamins, and electrolytes to aid in the health of chicks. It introduces beneficial bacteria which assists the chicks in developing a positive bacteria culture in it's digestive tract. It is given to them mixed in with their water.

Plastic Water/Feed Jar

A feeder and waterer are easy and convenient ways to feed and give water to your chickens. Just fill up the jar and screw either base on and your ready to go. With the jar, you will have to fill up their food and water less. Leave these out for them and they will eat and drink when they need it.


Shavings are needed in chickens pen/coop to use for their bedding. Bedding is needed for chickens throughout their entire lives. Since chicks need to be kept warm at a certain temperature, it is really important to have bedding for chicks so it can be used as an insulation layer between them and the cold floor. Clean the shavings out and put in new fresh shavings regularly.
