    My last brooder was a little under sized leaving the birds stressed when they were close to being transferred to coop, so I think I will build a larger one that is collapsible this go around. I wonder if I should get started on this, or would that be considered, "counting my chickens before they hatch".....literally. I really do crack myself up. :)

    I'm really not sure how it happens either, but the climate here in Southeastern PA is a bit more hospitable than over there on the western half. I personally believe it's the weather God's punishing you'uns for being Steelers fans. . :oops:

    Guys: if you are still using heat lamps for brooding...Send me $50.
    You should be using premier 1 brooder plates.

    Doesn't room temperature have to be pretty high (at least 50s or so) to use one of these? I thought I read that on one of their product boards. I had considered purchasing one until I read the recommendation for room temperature.
