They were with me just over 48hrs before their first brooder cleaning, which happened last night around 9pm. As of today, 5:30pm, they've already exceeded the amount of poo they produced their first two days! The brooder is all gross! Will the amount just keep increasing as time goes on? How often does everyone else clean their brooder, cause I'm already looking at every 24hrs, and I will probably end up doing it twice a day even if they increase their output only a little bit more. I don't think there's anything wrong with them, it caught me by surprise, since I've done a ton of reading on here and it seems like I missed the threads mentioning just the sheer amount of poo that comes out of these little chicks, lol. I have 3 bantams and 5 regulars in a 20inx40in box. Good thing I left the rubber gloves and paper towels out from last night!
