Yesterday there was one chick who had lost all his tail feathers. I removed him from the brooder, then today went to get a chick to keep him company in the house and found that several of the chicks have areas that are bloody. I was only able to catch one to bring inside (I just saw where he's lost virtually all the feathers on one wing). The others were too quick to get away or never came close enough to be caught in the first place. My 1st question: Is this the result of stress? We've had a few really cold nights this past week and since the brooder is in the garage it may not stay as warm as it needs to be even with a space heater right next to it. Wednesday morning we had a power outage that lasted an hour and a half, which caused me to bring everyone inside for a few hours. The brooder temp was up between 80-85 before I put them back in (they're all 2 weeks old), and when I would check on them there were always some lounging around near the front of the brooder so during the day and evening it didn't seem like it was too cold. My 2nd question: Should I leave them where they are, or try to turn my small future coop into a brooder for them? The coop gets more sunlight than the garage, so it tends to warm up inside. It's 8'x8' and close enough to an outlet that I could run a couple of heat lamps in there. I don't know if any of the stores here have brooder guard yet, that's probably my main concern -- 19 chicks probably don't need 64 sq ft to get lost in. My other option would be to fire up the second brooder in the garage and divide the chicks, but that could cause issues later when I want all the Delawares together as one flock.
