A good article
I am here for practical approach
1 Brooder house and brooder lights/heating system must be kept ON 12 hrs before arrival of chicks
2 Add probiotic, B complex and Vit A in water 12 hrs before arrival of chicks so that first water to chicks is lukewarm
3 Grounded maize to be given for first 24 hrs before introducing pre starter
4 Brooder temo must be maintained at 95 degree F during first week
5 Proper ventilation is a must with strict biosecurity
Level of Lysine, methionine, avl P must be kept as standard
