Can you guys tell me what you think of my brooder set up? I have 10 chicks arriving next week. Heat lamp is a reptile one, with a dimmer.

I separate the food and water so they don’t sling the crumbles into the waterer. Also, duck tape rolls work well to raise the height of the waterer to keep the pine shavings out. If it’s level to the floor they will kick so many pine shavings in it that it could wick all the water out of the bottle. If that is still too low, I keep a peanut can to use also.
