    Greetings from sunny West Texas! Me, my wife and 3 of my 4 daughters went and bought our 9 chicks yesterday and we love them all!

    Chick brooder #2 awaits the chicks as they grow. I made this from all scrape wood and hardware, except for the hardware cloth.

    Yay! Another Texan. And that's an awesome brooder you have there.

    This site has some great info on raising baby chicks, and a Texan forum thread.

    Welcome!
