Okay, as some of you may already know, I have 25 Black Australorp chicks arriving tomorrow. I will be cleaning out a small portion of my former pigeon loft/coop, a place where the pigeons were nesting, to be used as a brooder. There will be pine or cedar shavings and the open end will be blocked to keep of the south wind. The eaves do have vents, but that will be about two feet over their heads and they will be in a small cubbyhole that was used as a nesting area. Heat lamp will be provided, of course. The age of this chicks will range from 1 week to 2-3 days old. I know it's hard to say without seeing my setup, but pictures are unfortunately not available at the moment. Any thoughts or suggestions?
