    all depends on where you live (the climate) and if you have any way to brood chicks in the winter..

    some people refuse to have chicks in the house with them and have no way to brood them "outside".. others have barns or coops set up with brooders that can withstand their winters.. and some silly people like me hatch whenever we want because our winters are short and we don't mind brooders in the house

    I'm incubating now and will set up the brooder in the house for the first three weeks then the brooder goes out to the barn.
