Hi! Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day! Got a question.... We live in Southern Indiana, Its been getting cold here around 32 at night. Anyway, our son has wanted to get some Jersey Giants since this summer ( he's 8 going on 25) I finally found some chicks here locally. I was wanting to get about 5 of them, I usually set up a brooder in out garage. I use a very large plastic storage tote with a home made snug fit rabbit fence lid. My husband thinks it'd be a disaster because it's cold out. I think with the red heat lamp they'd be fine. I'd hate to get them, and then loose them to the climate, plus Kam would be heartbroken. And not to mention I'd NEVER hear the end of it from my hubby! Any suggestions? I can't bring them in the house. I have bad allergies, and we have 2 Westies and a cat that would think Santa came early this year! This is our first year with chickens and we've been Very Lucky so far. This past spring, we had about 25 - 1 day olds and did'nt loose 1. I wonder if 5 would be enough for them to be able to snuggle together if they do get cold?
