    Why would a brooder ever be empty? [​IMG] [​IMG]
  3. My brooder was empty for hours! Just long enough to change out all of the wood shavings and fill it with guinea keets!

    Every morning I grumble about the extra time I have to spend with the brooder. When ever I have to clean the thing out (especially on a hot, muggy day) I cuss the thing.

    But if it sits there empty for more than a few weeks I feel like I'm not being productive...

    I reckon they're kinda like women. You can't live with them and you can't live without them.
