My long suffering husband has put his foot down. I am no longer allowed to raise chicks in the house, or garage. I can't really say that I disagree (filthy! dusty creatures!), but I need to start raising chicks in Feb. to get ready for the show season next year. So here are my questions: Can I let a few broodies raise them? Would they need supplemental heat? Could I simply hang a heat bulb somewhere that they could get under? Does anyone have plans for a brooder that can be kept outside? (I know they will need supplemental heat) I have raised several batches of chicks, just not in the Winter. Any help would be great!
