We fell for the $.50 temptation and brought home 8 new chicks. 2 banties and 6 unknowns. The banties are just a few days old and the others are a few weeks old if I had to guess. Would it be okay if they share the brooder for a couple days while we get something else set up. The little ones seem to stay out of the way. All are doing well, and they seem to like to catch free rides when they can. Right now I have a plastic bin with a heat lamp on one side with a towel over half to keep it warmer for the little ones and half uncovered so the older chicks can stay cool. Not sure how it will work because it seems that it might not be warm enough for the little ones and too warm for the older ones. Working on getting an accurate thermometer reading now.
