I just ordered 2 blue laced red wyandotte and 2 cream leggier chicks to add to my flock (Buff Orp. hen, Barred Rock hen, and a RIR rooster). I can't wait! ...but i can't get them till april ):
anyway, here is my brooder I made yesterday. Any tips? comments? suggestions?
It's 3 feet long and about 1.5 feet deep. think that's enough for 4 chicks? It has a door that opens the whole front panel to make cleaning (and grabbing the little cuties) easier. also I made the heat lamp stand have an adjustable height with three different settings to regulate temperature more easily. inside, i made a tiny little roosting pole. what do you guys think? Thanks!
