    Now that it's hatching season, I set up some brooders. Brooder #1 will hold BBS Orps, #2 should hold BR and #r should hold the other breeds I'm hatching now. I threw out all my old brooders, as they weren't in the best shape.

    Brooder 1

    Brooder 2

    Brooder 3 is under construction. I am adding three more boxes of the same size to it to make a total of 4 x 4. I have a lot of feeders and waterers in the mail.

    My hatch isn't even set yet, but I'm really excited about this one.

    Yep, you got it. I am so sorry [​IMG] here is a hug for you, but sorry to tell you it is contagious........ [​IMG] the addiction. Now, repeat after me: My name is PipsNick. I AM a chicken-a-holic. [​IMG] That looks just like my kitchen floor in there! One BYCer on here has a refrigerator box! [​IMG] can you imagine how cool is that brooder??? Where there is a void, you shall fill it. If you set the eggs yesterday you'd have dry fuzzy butts on Easter Day, so set them NOW, and keep the bator closed and hope for day 20 on your hatch????
