So I normally do not raise chicks until May or June--but I was presented with an opportunity for some AWESOME eggs yesterday (1 dozen) and I was up all night thinking about it...I have not spoken with hubby yet because he simply will not understand. That said, it's below zero here at night & maybe 10 degrees during the day. I usually brood my chicks in a spare bedroom for a few weeks & then I move them out to the coop. However, my coop is over-flowing (I have 15 birds for sale right now). I was thinking of doing the spare bedroom thing & then I have a large reptile cage that is screen on two sides, glass on the other, wood on the back & screened top...it's about 4 ' square...that I could brood them in the house in until they are feathered....but I dunno how hubby will react.... What do you guys do with your chicks??
