- Forum: Incubating & Hatching Eggs
I was asked to post these pics here. I put my 3 week old chicks out in the outside coop when the nights were still in the high 30's and low 40's. They were used to the feather duster broody chicken in their inside brooder, and I wanted them to feel comfortable and at home in the big coop, so I made a brooder bucket out of a 5 gall bucket and some polar fleece. The holes were drilled about the size of a pencil. They love this bucket.
