I am getting 15 Barred Rock Chicks next week. I am all set with my brooder and plans for a coop/chicken house. But I do not have electricity where my coop will be. I am not sure if I should keep the brooder in the garage to start with until the chicks get their feathers, or if it would be better for them to be on the back screened deck (with their heat-lamp at this stage of course) to help them acclimate to the fall temperatures. Will I need to run electricity to the coop? Or is their a great alternative to this that will keep their water from freezing. Thoughts please.
