I want to get some chicks (it remains to be seen if my hen will stay broody or I have to buy them). I have some questions on a brooder. My idea is to build it in the run under the covered part so my hens will get used to seeing the chicks on a regular basis. My run is plenty big (8 x 20 w/ only 5 hens and they free range almost every day). I live in FL so keeping them warm outside shouldn't be an issue. I want the brooder box to be on free standing legs while in the run so I can just pick up the box and move it to the yard and sit it directly in the grass during the day. I want them to be able to peck at the grass through the hardware cloth bottom. I only plan on a very small number of chicks (maybe 4 or 5). I will need to build it small enough so I can move it on my own for this to work but I want to give them plenty of room as they grow. Any suggestions on size? Also this will be my first time raising chicks. I know about lowering the temp weekly but it is usually 95-100 deg here every day. Do I even need to worry about a heat lamp after the first few weeks during the day? I don't want them to get too hot.
