Finally got our chicks out to the garage. Never brought up baby chicks before , so I had to experience the horrible invasion of dander dust just once in order to learn never do that again. There doing really good, so long as I can keep the cat away. I built a lid for the brooder and hung 4 - 5 lb. weights off each corner. That should discourage him and keep his diet to the mice. Just want to thank those who help me along the way and who continue to help guide me through raising these beautiful creatures of God!
