    [​IMG] if you go to "where am I, where are you," in the social thread you can locate and post on your state thread. There are likely to be chicken folks in your area. The Michigan thread moves fast and has some very nice people on it.

    Welcome to BYC!
     
  10. We are getting really excited about getting baby chicks in two weeks. Now a teacher at school says it is too cold here to put the brooder in the garage, she says we have to put it in the house! Now, I really don't want them in the house... My plan was to build a cardboard brooder with cardboard then paper twel on the floor and cardboard walls with bales of straw around the outside of three sides for insulation and the lightbulb in the reflector thing hanging down in the middle from a chain over a rafter to get it to the right temp. Will this be o.K.? All advice welcome
