    I have my brooder already. Just have to add water,food, and turn on light. Have shavings on bottom and an old sheet over them plus a couple extra sheet for first 3 days. Have food, baby grit, Sav-a-chcik to mix in water, 2 nipple waters, and trough feeder. My chicks are suppose to ship and arrive March 13-15. 20 BRS And 5 Araucanas. My Brooder is 7 foot by 2 foot and I put cardboard around corners to make them round. I only have it where they will be in 3 foot for the 1st week then will pull out the divider and give them the full 7 foot. I can hardly wait. Will be the first time with babies.
