Have a ? about the brooder. By April 13th we r going to have at least 24 chicks from 3 days old to 2 weeks old. 1. Do we need to seperate the baby babies? 2. What size should the brooder be? Do we really need to have a foot of space for each chick? If we do we were going to rethink because we r just using a cardboard box and go ahead and get a sheet of plywood and build a bigger box. Will have to get some more heat lamps and such. What size shuold the box be? like a 5x5 area?
