I am going to be brooding my first order of 15 chicks. I am going to put my brooder in the coop as the weather is very worm (hot). How much room what size should the brooder area be? How many feeders/waters should I have?
The first week or two the brooder should be smaller, than you should make it bigger after 2 weeks. When under 2 weeks mine are in a 28x55 box brooder, I generally brood 10-25, than they go to a 3x10, than at 4-6 weeks I start letting them out to integrate.
