    About a week after I hatched 5 little olive eggers, I needed to get more chick starter feed, so of course I went to the feed store. Newly hatched chicks in the brooder and I discover there are Black Jersey Giant and Light Brahma chicks there. These breeds have been on my "want" list. Oh well, 2 more chicks in the brooder will be just fine.

    This is despite the two MORE sets of 7 eggs incubating in two Brinsea Mini Advance incubators, still.

    Well, within a couple more weeks, they needed more brooder space, so I put together a brooder/coop kit on the back porch to clear up brooder space just ahead of those other two imminent hatches.

    They were kinda scared, at first.

    Here's the clump of chicks, the 5 olive eggers, the BJG and the LB. The latter two are a week younger than the former.

    Here are the two obvious roos.

    I'll have to get some shots of them all lined up on the roost bar.

    I love your roost bar design! I'm designing my brooder (in my head, for now) and was a little stumped on how to mount the roost, yet still make it easy to take apart later. Thanks for the inspiration.
