    We stuck these tomato stakes in the brooder at probably 5 or 6 days old...and they've been using them ever since! So darn cute! Not the best pictures...but I love seeing them all tucked in! I've been having them out for a few hours a day in a big screened in porch over grass when I get home from work and they LOVE if! Tires them out...just like puppies ;)
    (Can you tell I've never raised chicks?!?)

    3 weeks old today :)

    Boy that's a lot of chicks! So cute on their little roosts. We made a small roost for ours in brooder, but most gave it no interest.
    I didn't realize til mine were long out of the brooder that I wished I had turned off red light and given better photo light for the family album.

    Yeah, I've taken some nice photos of them with my good camera in natural light...but I felt badly! They were loving the light after a cooler evening outside!
    This is only 1/2 of one of the two brooders we have. They're all on the roost side of the dog crate--no ones on the food/water side!!

    Here's their outdoor temporary run while I'm around outside in the afternoon/evenings:[​IMG]

    That's a nice temporary run. Did you make it or buy it?

    Lovely flock.
