Caring For Your Hatchlings
Important Information - PLEASE READ BEFORE PLACING YOUR ORDER:
Most livestock WILL REQUIRE A HEAT SOURCE once they arrive home. This should be a heat plate or heat lamp, and needs to hold a temperature of at least 100 °F. (Household heating, electric blankets or hot water bottles are NOT a sufficient source of heat).
Heat lamp sets and heat plates are available to purchase in the 'SHOP' section of our website.
Please ensure you have all the necessary equipment needed to raise your hatchlings BEFORE placing your livestock order.
