Alright, are chicks are coming tomorrow! I have some quick questions before they come. Should I give them sugar water the first day? If so, what's the ratio for the sugar and water? Should I put a stuffed animal in the brooder? Here are some pictures of my homemade brooder. This is the larger wooden box that the chicks will go in when they're bigger. Inside, we have a smaller dog house for now Overview of brooder, still have to add bedding, food and water Since it is a doghouse, their was an opening. I boarded it up so the chicks can't escape or get stuck. The yellowly bottom part below the other boards is actually a board, not a whole. Does it look okak? I have more pictures if needed! Does everything look okay? Any suggestions? Help would be greatly appreaciated! Thanks!
