We are first time "parents" of 15 chicks that we brought home from our preschool incubation project. My daughter and I have had chickens in the past although she received them in April as older laying hens. Our chicks are now going on 4 weeks old and live in two seperate troughs within our garage. I feel as if they are running out of room already in their living quarters. I've looked through SO many of the ideas in this forum for brooder although most photos are of newly hatched babies. Being that Kentucky's winter weather is slowly arriving in the next few weeks, I am worried that they need to stay within the garage for a longer period. It would be SO helpful to find more ideas in containing these babies for a few weeks longer.
