These are my first chicks. I have always bought older chicks that were at least a month old and I have been doing great with them thanks for all you BYC's that have helped me when I have a concern. They are 2 1/2 weeks old today (fri). They are getting a lot of feathers and have tripled at least in size. I have a draft free coop. I have 7 other young pullets in there now and I was going to section off a part of it with heavy cardboard and put brooder lights up for them. I was just wondering if I'm getting into a hurry to put them out there. Of course I'm going to take my thermometer and make sure I can keep temps up. I would like to keep them inside but I have 25 chicks in a 50 gal rubbermaid tub that I made into a brooder and they are really getting crowded.
