Just a little tip about flooring for the brooder... I put down the no-slip rubberized flooring and then use puppy pee pads over it for the first week. It makes clean-up soooo easy. I change them once a day for the first couple of days, then when they start eating and pooping more, twice a day. After a week I go to pine shavings. By that time they know what is food and what isn't (hopefully).
