In the Brooder
- Jan 6, 2016
So, about a week ago my husband and I agreed one getting chickens. I told him I just wanted between 4 and 6. I've kept chickens for a short time once before but life happened and I had to give my flock away :-(. I cried like a little baby. My husband and I don't have much money to build a coop or brooder for our soon to be new babies so we are looking for used wood and pallets to use for building. My husband can build just about anything! I am going nuts. I want to get started so bad but I can't do anything until the coop is built. The plan it to have a section of the coop divided off and set up for the chicks as a brooder untill they are older. We are looking at building an 8x8 coop with a 16x8 run. Any advice on anything? Also any advice on not going crazy having to wait?
