So I'm getting 6 baby chicks and i already got my supplies but i was wondering if its good or not.
What are the dimensions on the inside at the floor level? How long do you anticipate needing to keep them in this brooder? I would be sure to put plastic under it or lining it with plastic (then bedding over that) to avoid leakage and damage to the floor beneath.
Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us.
That should work fine, for a while atleast. However, you may need to put a lid/top on to prevent the chicks from jumping out as they get older. Also be sure to put a layer of good bedding down in it, such as a couple of inches of wood shavings.
I'm glad you joined our "flock!"
The brooder looks pretty good to me, as long as you can safely hang a heat lamp over it or place another type of chick warmer in it. I would also recommend using shavings on the bottom, since you don't want the chicks walking on a slippery surface and getting splayed legs.
Good luck with your chicks!
IF you put a cover on it - only use wire, the chicks need the air flow and protection from household pets, etc.
