I have been combing through these threads the last few days to attempt to find and answer without double posting the same question, but onviously im still at a loss, so here goes... How big does the brooder need to be for 12 chicks? I had something in mind but as i read further and learning the the babies will be in it for atleast a month i began to question the size. I dont want to cramp the little guys, but dont really wanna over-do it due to space limitations. As i have learned the "rule of thumb" is 3 sq ft within the coup per chicken, 10 sq ft in the run per chicken...is there something like that regarding the brooder? Thanks in advance for all the help! Yall are great and look forward to learning more!
