    I know! It's hard to sleep waiting for the call from the P.O.!
    It is great fun until you can't sleep from all the CHEEPING! then you boot them out to the coop. It's all good! [​IMG]

    Quote:It's good to see that you've completed the brooder AHEAD of getting chicks, some folks don't do that and have mixed success with their chicks.

    Hopefully you don't have a rodent problem in your brooder location, or if you do, you have one of those ball-bearing, roaming mouse traps (aka a cat) who thins them out to nothing.

    Otherwise, things are looking very good.

    Thanx, I have been doing lots of research, want my chicks to be happy and healthy, the brooder is located at the end of our hallway, near my sons room(who is going to college this fall) it is a safe place and I havent yet had a problem with rodents (knock on wood)
