The brooders are ready. They are 4 feet by 8 feet and 2 feet high. I have two lamps in each for the first two weeks in case one burns out. There are 50 little ones due - 25 cornish x and 25 assorted pulletts, (hopefully to lay different color eggs) There is a 1 inch mesh wire top, but we won't use it for the first couple weeks. I really NEED to concentrate on work, but that is very hard to do. Let us know what you think.
