Hey everybody!
Just wanted to introduce myself. I've been lurking and learning for a while and figured it was time to join the club. I've had quail and a few chickens for a couple years but just got done with a chicken Taj Mahal as I call it and decided it was time to get more chicks. Just got my order of 30 chicks from Murry Mcmurry hatchery and all are happy and healthy. I will post some pictures later of the coop and my chicks.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Here is my coop and the chicks in what was my feed bin but now brooder. Any idea what the chick is in the second picture?

Welcome to the BYC flock.  I see you are using a Mama hen heating pad arrangement.  How is it working out for you?

The heating pad is working good. It stays right at 95 degrees inside. I added the light on top because it has been very windy and in the thirties at night here for the past week and I wanted to make sure they were warm enough. Some seem to prefer the top deck and others in the cave. I have the top of the brooder (feed bin) proped up with a 5 gallon bucket and a blanket covering the gap at night and the temperature stays in the 90's. I plan to remove the light and blanket soon and use only the heating pads for the warmth they need.

Hi and welcome to BYC - great coop build - well done! If my flock saw that, they'd stage a protest of mammoth proportions! :) Hope all continues to go well with your chicks.

 

All the best

There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around the run.
Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
