Make sure the water troughs are cleaned always before adding water. Give the chicks enough water to avoid dehydration of the chicks. The housing area for chicks should have enough light preferably red bulbs since injury is not easily noticed and this will reduce pecking. Source of heat is important at this age to provide warmth to the chicks required for development.

The housing area of the chicks should be well spacious to accommodate the number for chicks you are keeping and provide enough space for exercise. The chicks should not be crowded in the room since this encourages pecking and spread of some infections.
