Ok, so as I have posted before, I have 26 fuzz butts just over a week old now. They are going through food like it is going out of style and are doing good with drinking lots of water. Here are my concerns: 1. Their three-room brooder box is plenty large enough, except the walls. They are now able to "jump" over 3/4 of the way up to the top, it is just a matter of time before they can scale the walls and I have no way to make the walls taller, and I'd rather not have loose chicks in my spare bedroom. The temp in the box directly under the light stays pretty even at about 90, they no longer sleep there but in the box further from the light, where it is between 80-85, sleeping in their little groups. I would have to figure a way of moving the light up more as it is as high as I can safely put it. I guess another option is to get a different light bulb (I have a red heat lamp currently). 2. The coop is for the most part complete, we just need to add the roosts inside and run an outlet out there. It should be predator proof (we have racoons, squirrels and a neighbors cat) but as there hasn't been anything in it to draw predators I don't know for 100% sure. Temps at night have been in the 50's and the days are anywhere from high 60's to high 80's. 3. With the food and how much are they eating, is it bad to let them "free feed" or should I only fill it once in the morning and once in the evening and leave it empty until the next refill. I fill the water whenever it needs to be cleaned regardless of how much is in the bottle. I just wonder if it would be OK to move them to the coop, along with the heat lamp (I can run an extension cord until the outlet is done) or move the whole thing, brooder boxes and all to the coop. sorry for such a long post, but I am looking forward to the wisdom from those more experienced in such matters.
