    I need to know how big my chukar chick brooder needs to be. I'm getting 100 chukar chicks. I have a kitty pool that's ruffle 3.5 feet by 7.5 feet, will that be big enough to keep them in the brooder for 5 weeks.

    That should be fine I raised 50 in September in a 2.5 by 5 ft plywood brooder and I had them in their for about eight weeks till the weather turned nice enough to take them out side also rember to cover the top they can fly very shortly I found two running around my basement one night.
