Are chicks able to be housed outdoors upon receiving say on central coast of CA or need to keep indoors and provide lighting for warmth?

Asked by: LadyD
When chicks arrive at day olds they should be kept in a protected and warm environment with a heat lamp that can produce heat at floor level between 95-99 degrees for the first couple weeks. As the chicks start to feather they can have lowered heat and be outside around 7-8 weeks if the air is between 65-70 degrees

What is the average hen to rooster on a quantity of 10 ? Why is the breeder not able to secs them?

Asked by: Frankiem1966
There is no way of telling the actual ration of male to female a customer will receive because the babies are taken directly from hatch baskets and placed in boxes without secing. Genetics generally prove to be 50/50 males to females overall on this breeds but it is all in the selection. Hatcheries do not generally sec bantams due to the fragility of the bantam babies body. It is difficult to sec them and nobody wishes harm to the babies while doing so.
