In the Brooder
- Feb 7, 2008
We put our girls out in the coop today, but since it's Maine and winter won't let go, they're out there with lots of shavings, half of their brooder box, and a 250w red heat light. I left the pop hole open today (overcast, windy, yucky) and the temp inside was a toasty 75-80 degrees which is what they liked when they were inside.So, cross your fingers! I love those chicks, but the poop everywhere was just too much, and I didn't have the heart to not let them out to run around my dining room several times a day!The girls will be 4 weeks old tomorrow. This chicken stuff is fun!!Thanks everyone for your GREAT advice!!!
