Plastic tote for brooder box

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

 How many chicks could I keep in a 50 gallon plastic tote? And for how long It's about 38"x21" and 17" deep.They will be hatching on 5/29/16. I just candled some today and all seem healthy. I didn't realize so many would be doing so well. I have amerucana,black copper maran,silver seabright, white crested black polish and a few mutts. LOL. I know they grow fast. My last ones are huge now at 10 weeks. Thanks for any advice.

I kept around 10 in a smaller tote for a week or so. Just have to make sure there's plenty of room for everyone. I like to say, "if you can't see at least 6 inches of the floor or more, it is too crammed"
