Well I went out to feed every one yesterday morning. Checked my brooder and checked on my new black cochins that I just had hatch for me the day before. In the =brooder I had 20 bufff orpingtons that I bought of ebay. I was happy when I had so many of them hatch. I had my 8 newly hatched black cochins, about 5 guneas,10 quail and a little turken chick. all in the brooder. anyway I filled their water made sure they had feed. I had a platic contanier on one side taht I put the new hatched chicks in.I chased a quail that got caught behind it. he was fun to chase around. got him caught and tossed him on the other side. closed the brooder up and went inside to fix breackfast. So about 10 min lkater my boyfirend goes "You smell something" He goes out the back door and yells "Shi@@@@" I go out to see "what the hec@" My brooder caught fire. the smoke was thick and covered the back yard and the neighbors yard... it was awful. well he put it out. thank god it was right beside hes pouch that atcached to the house. anyway heres my brooder....... it was awful to hear the chicks screaming.........after the fire was out. surprise I pulled out 6 buff orpingtons,3 guineas and two quail(Which 1 quail died later). and my little turken made it. They had run to the back and was hiding in the waterer.
