My neighbor and I are placing an order next week for meaties. We will be splitting an order of CornishX. In the past I have gotten my Cornish older and they have been ready to go outside. I will end up with 12 or 13. My plan for the brooder might be a little odd but I think it will work. I have a dog and cat in the house so for me the safest place to keep them will be in the closet. The good thing is the closet also holds the hot water heater and its always really warm in there. I plan on keeping the light on in there but I doubt they will need more heat. I plan on using Wallyworld storage containers. If they have to stay inside for 3 weeks then how big of a container will I need? Should I split them into 2 different ones? How high should the sides be? I plan on using pine shavings for bedding and giving them plenty of food and water. When they are ready to go outside they will be in a 10x10 dog run.
