When I ordered my chicks (yesterday) I was told that they wouldn't arrive for 2-3 weeks......got a phone call this morning saying that they would be delivered Friday (as in 3 days from now). So now I'm in a panic---what the heck do I put them in now??? I was planning on getting a brooder built in the time I had, now that's just not gonna happen in time. I've got a big wash tub--will that work for 15 chicks while I get the brooder built? I'm thinking that it shouldn't take me more than a few days (a week at most) to get it put together, but since I can't get to the lumber yard till the paycheck comes in (a few days after the chicks arrive), I'm kinda stuck.
