Hello All, I have been comptimplating for a few years now about raising chickens and now that I've been forced into semi-retirement I'm going to do it! I talked to my local Tractor Supply yesterday and they told me that the new chicks will be in at the end of this month so I'm trying to see if I can actually go ahead and do this. I have a shed connected to the back of my garage which used to be used for my dog. Mind you this area is insulated, paneled, wall to wall carpeted and also has a place for a heater and an air conditioner. 2 windows and of course a 'doggie' door. What I need to know is if I can put my new chicks in that shed in a 'brooder'? I think that's what its called, along with the heat lamp. I'd appreciate any comments Countrydreamer8!
