Looks good but the only thing I see ( and I may be wrong) is: is there a place for them to go to get out
of the heat from the lamp if they are too warm? Nice set up!

That's what I was wondering. I enlarged your photos and they look to be feathering nicely. In your area, one heat lamp at one end of the brooder would do very well, especially since you have huddle box in there.

Well. The first night i was alittle scared so i hooked uo a second light. I quickly relised that i only neededthe one. Although i have turned the lights off on the hot days they get blasted with full sun for the final few hours of sunlight so i had to hook yp a boxfan.
