    I have 7 2 week old Royal Palms. They keep jumping into the side of the brooder and into the wire. How can I get them to stop. I don't want them to hurt theirselves.

    Our guys were like popcorn. Old pantyhose cut up and stretched over wire on inside of brooder; slip some foam weatherstripping between wire and fabric (kinda like a trampoline). Allows light through, keeps dander/bedding in brooder, poults can't beak it and bounce harmlessly off it.
