    Would it be ok to put my brooder in my mini barn or would it be to hot and humid. The barn is 15 by 15 ft

    Hi there,

    My first thought was, is your mini barn insulated, draft free, predator free, (how old are your chicks) what kind of brooder are you using, what breed are you brooding? How many are you brooding?
    What else lives in the barn, that you know of!?
    I couldn't do it out of paranoia...and... I am unfortunate enough not to own a barn, of any kind, unless you include my house! :)

    Can you easily keep an eye on them in case of the different 'emergencies' that can pop up, especially when they are just starting out?

    Hopefully the sage/old pros will pop up on here and give you a more articulate 'argument' of the pros and cons...

    Good luck with whatever route you end up taking...
