    I have a really nice 4x4 brooder that my dh built for me, but it is just too large to use for a few chicks. So yesterday I talked him into buying a 101 gallon metal stock tank to use for chicks! It's big but long so it will fit much better in the tiny area we have.

    Anyone else use these? I know the feedstores here do, and they seem to fit a lot of chicks in them.

    Now I just have to wait for my chicks to hatch! [​IMG]
