Featured Stories on BackYard Chickenspost #12812 of 178703/19/16 at 8:19pmI never seen a hen off the eggs so much as that one splash miner. I stopped counting days cause every day after I got home from work she was off em. Different times and all. Then one day I was feeding birds and heard cheeping. Couldn't believe it. They work a helluva lot better than an incubator, I know that. And she hatched them in 20 days too according to my notes from when I first saw her sitting on them.

The point was when the weather was bad outside, too cold where I'm at or too rainy down in Louisiana. Me and sdm111 were joking last year about how much dust the chicks can kick up once they start feathering and scratching around IF still in the house.
Pretty positive everybody knows pine shavings are fine for chicks.
Different farms, different methods. We used to brood chicks once they were a couple weeks old in a large brooder outside until a big limb fell on it during a storm and that was the end of that. We had a huge sectioned aviary type bird cage we had when I used to keep birds and modified it into a chick brooder and it works perfect. We keep it in our insulated building with a bunch of lamps and yes there is a lot of dust and feathers but at least they arent staying in my house long this year. Lol. I keep my newborns in large totes in my spare bedroom where my incubator is. I had a little vinyl greenhouse I used for starting seeds and rooting plant cuttings and converted it into a brooding area. It has shelves that hold several totes. And best of all the vinyl holds in heat and contains any dust. I only have to use regular light bulbs in the lamps because it stays so warm. Before all this we brooded chicks in huge stock tanks in the bedroom until they were feathered enough to go out and the room was a dusty mess so I feel you there. There is no denying that chicks are dusty little critters.
Chickens are my hobby, my passion, and my therapy.
