    I'm so excited! We got the brooder pen set up this morning and went and picked up 6 chicks this afternoon! 3 Ameraucanas pullets and 3 Barred Rock pullets.

    All 6 seem to be doing great so far. I did have to clean on pasty bottom but other than that they are all lively and eating and drinking. And taking their cute little naps! :)

    Thanks! I got the set up from out local Atwoods. It's was a box set of the sides and PVC light holder that's adjustable and the pieces to connect it all together. It was $25 and took about 10 mins to set up and it will fold up when were done with it.
