considered, with factors such as house design, harvest
weight, thinning, ventilation and welfare standards taken
into account.
The ideal environment for chicks will give them the
best start. While minor changes may be well tolerated,
significant deviations will cause them stress.
Should challenges increase, chemical and physical
changes will occur, with consequences including immunosuppression, poor weight gain and higher feed conversion rates, for example.
Chicks must have plenty of feed and water available.
Feed should be placed on feeding paper, while water must
be clean, with lines checked and fully functioning prior
to arrival.

Light must be evenly distributed, with a minimum of
25 lux in low intensity areas.
Once chicks arrive it is important to check that they
are high quality, to do so a few boxes of chicks should be
sampled. 
Regular checks and adjustments must be made during
the first two weeks that the chicks are on the farm.
At three days old, for example, it is important to
see if chicks are properly consuming feed and water,
and checks should be made in four or five locations in
the house.
Light intensity needs to be adjusted from the second day
onward, while from days four to six further checks should
be made to ventilation and temperature. ■
