Talking about brooders & temps, I had to shut my lamp off this afternoon also. The brooder is in the garage, we had all 3 garage doors open plus the 2 walkouts. When it gets cold at night it gets fairly cool & stays cool in there but with this early heatwave we also raised the lamp, even for the night.
Here's a pic of our brooder I was gonna post earlier....it's made out of a huge box. Base/bottom is 31x38, the taller section where we hang the lamp is 38in high and the shorter section is 22.
My 10 yr. old decorated it with the names of the new chicks.
While I was working out in the yard this evening my DH & DS went fishing in Caseville and this what my DS got.
