if it’s your first flock...you don’t really need a brooder. i just started a new flock. you can just put them in the coop and they will stay under the hot plate or lightRule of twos....
Make it twice as big as you think you need, walk in....
Put in twice the amount of ventilation you think you need.
It will cost twice as much as you planned.
It will take twice as long to build as you thought it would.
If this is your first flock build coop first, then get chicks.
Since you built it bigger build in a in coop brooder/chicken jail.
