I started 25 chicks (new hampshire, delaware, barred plymouth rock) in my basement, in a homemade brooder. I used a cold frame for the brooder that I'm going to use for gardening. I moved the chicks to the chicken house last week. Today I shot a video of their "brooder" area that I made in the chicken house. I should have started them in the chicken house, they are much happier out there. There are YouTube videos of the brooder, the first day I got them, and at 1 week, in addition to this video.
