    Very cute chicks. Just remember that their legs grow very quick, and to keep checking the leg bands.

    Nice setup. [​IMG]

    I love it! That's the kind of setup I had as well for 22 chicks in my garage, homemade brooder boxes taped together [​IMG] Just beware, mine were flying out of it by 4 wks old and I had to put a length of fencing over the top [​IMG] silly chicks

    What a fun area for the chicks...looks like they have all sorts of fun area's to hide. Got a cover for that? In about 2 weeks they will be flying right out of that [​IMG]

    Nice looking chicks! I love how you have them sharing a brooder with a "window"- great idea! Your chicks are very healthy and happy looking! Thanks for the pics!

    The legbands i know im checking the legs almost daily i put most to lose and they fell off. There is no top we were going to finish up the coop and move them in this week but the cold wet weather has postponed it 1 more week we might have baby chicks running tough the house before we get them out [​IMG]
