My brooder is 4 feet wide by 8 feet long that will be in my two stall garage and its for 26 chicks for 6-8 weeks depending on the weather. But my dad said he may need to get to something in the garage. The brooder will be set up either behind or infront of his muscle car. The brooder will fit but he wont have much room to get to things. So my question is this can I make the brooder any smaller?

In a few weeks 26 chix will be a bit bigger and I
would keep it as is.
maybe since its going to be on a tarp you could pull it
it out of the way for dad.when needed.
or make the brooder out of large cardboard boxes
with the bottoms cut out. lighter to pull around
I always use cardboard its then a throw away..
less mess. hope this helps.

Use the trunk of his muscle car, then it won't be in the way.

Does his muscle car run? The reason I ask is, if it does, you want to put them in front of it. The carbon monoxide from the exhaust would be toxic to your babies. Just out of curiosity, what kind of muscle car does he have? I'm a bit of a car fanatic. Good luck with your babies!
