So I spent a good deal of the weekend building a larger brooder that is 3x4x2. Right now I have my three week old poults in a large rubbermaid tote. This new brooder would basically double the area for them and it would get them out to the garage rather than in my computer room. I'm really getting to dislike turkey dust. Anyway, I get everything set up, temp right around 80 which is the temp in the old brooder. Have the water, roost and feeder oriented the same as in the small brooder so they will figure out where everything is. I put them in and for the first half hour everything is good. Then they start calling loudly and pacing back and forth. Then two basically flop over and will not get up. The third is pacing back forth at the far end of the brooder. I quick mix up a concentrated dose of molasses and water in my eye dropper and attempt to give the two some. This worked when one got stressed when I move them from the incubator the brooder. When I first picked them up they were listless, but then they became prizefighters and the eye dropper idea became a battle which I gave up on since it seemed to cause even more stress for them. I quickly move them back to the old brooder and within a minute all three are up, purring, cooing, happy as clams. So is this normal?? They scared the c#%$ out of me! Here are the new digs. Back in the old brooder less than a minute after being put back. Right now they are all dustbathing next to the waterer because they are not happy unless it is full of wet pine shavings. When I go and look at them one of them throws me the stinkeye and starts in with a warning putt. Guess I'm the badguy today.
