I'm planning on using a plastic tote for the brooder. My husband is starting to be concerned about the safety. I'm not attaching light to the box at all (using the light stand from the Hatchery) but he's still not sure. Is this alright to use? It's a thinner, transparent tote. My new brooder issue is due to one set of chicks is coming earlier (yea!!) On the 27th and the 2nd set 16 may. This time frame is not long enough for first to be out into coop nor have both sets altogether in the brooder. Any suggestions on how to set them up in same brooder, not letting them be altogether?? I appreciate any help and I hope I posted this right.
