The new chick baby should live in a large carton box for 2 or 3 weeks. If the temperature is proper (not too cold or too hot), the carton box could be placed in the garage. After 3-week’s box life, the chicken becomes stronger and could live in a chicken coop or house.
Between the chicken coop and the ground, there should be a distance, to be waterproof. The holes of the wire fence outside the chicken house should be small to avoid other wild animals entering. The wire fence should be buried at least one foot into the ground to prevent animals such as weasels from burrowing in. Cover the coop with a light but strong plastic net to prevent eagles from picking up the chicks.
Most organic kitchen waste, not salty or oily, can use as feed for chicks, like fruit peels, vegetables, and leftovers. But they can’t be the staple food. And backyard chicken also makes a contribution to environmental protection, by reducing kitchen waste. And there are also worms, and grass for chickens in the backyard (the chicken house may not have that). But the most convenient way is still to buy chicken feed, like Nutrena, Kent, Blue Seal, Evergreen, Buckey, and Purina. Next, for chickens of different ages, the feed is also not the same.
