    Hey everybody!
    Just wanted to introduce myself. I've been lurking and learning for a while and figured it was time to join the club. I've had quail and a few chickens for a couple years but just got done with a chicken Taj Mahal as I call it and decided it was time to get more chicks. Just got my order of 30 chicks from Murry Mcmurry hatchery and all are happy and healthy. I will post some pictures later of the coop and my chicks.

    Welcome to the BYC flock. I see you are using a Mama hen heating pad arrangement. How is it working out for you?

    The heating pad is working good. It stays right at 95 degrees inside. I added the light on top because it has been very windy and in the thirties at night here for the past week and I wanted to make sure they were warm enough. Some seem to prefer the top deck and others in the cave. I have the top of the brooder (feed bin) proped up with a 5 gallon bucket and a blanket covering the gap at night and the temperature stays in the 90's. I plan to remove the light and blanket soon and use only the heating pads for the warmth they need.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - great coop build - well done! If my flock saw that, they'd stage a protest of mammoth proportions! [​IMG] Hope all continues to go well with your chicks.

    All the best

    There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around the run.
