    I just went to check to see if the heat was improving and one of them flew up on top of the feeder jar! I better get to making a top!

    They have spread out from the corner now so I think it's cooling down some.

    Keeping them in, in this situation, is one thing chicken wire is actually good for.

    Howdy:welcome:frow Happy:ya to have you join the family. Enjoy your time here at BYC! :)
    Novel idea, I used mine to partition off a room to keep puppies from running the whole house.

    Make sure each chick knows where the food is and the water. Sometimes they need their beak dipped in water to start them drinking. They do need a wire top as soon as they practice flying. Otherwise they can fly/fall out of the brooder and be devoured by house pets, or get chilled because they can't fly back in.

    G’Day from down under brezbyme :frow Welcome and Congratulations!

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    You might want to also Find Your State Thread and pop in and say hello.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

    If you would like to share more Pictures and Stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out ;)
