    Brooder is built, and assembled in my bathroom (which is, conveniently, gutted for a remodel right now) and I am testing out that lamp. So Excited! I posted pics of my brooder on my page, all scrap wood. I have never built anything before and it was so much fun. I hope it will be ok (first time chickie mommie in case you can't tell).

    Oh nice brooder! We just have a plain old box! I would love to build something like that in the future!

    I'll wait with you-----I have 4 showgirls and 1 silkie that were just shipped to me this afternoon----should be here by 3 p.m. tomorrow. Also have 23 chicks coming from Ideal---they either shipped them out today or will tomorrow. I am more nervous about the Ideal chicks, as they have 2 days to reach me-----I am really hoping they shipped today, as I won't be in town on Friday, and someone else will have to pick them up.

    Your brooder looks great and your bathroom works well for a location. How many are you expecting? [​IMG] Keep us posted!

    I'm waiting with you guys. I have 7 from mypetchicken. They are not here today! Maybe tomorrow. My brooders are rabbit cages. They work well.

    My brooder for indoors is a very large Vari-Kennel dog crate, taken apart and put open end to open end with chicken wire over the top-----lots of room. When the chicks get bigger, they will be moved out to the garage to a huge stock tank with chicken wire over the top. (2 heat lamps for each brooder).

    25 from Welp and a handful from TSC next week. I need another heat lamp, it just won't do it (I tried one of those CHE and I think the brooder is just too tall. I don't really want to put it in the brooder (I have read too many fire stories). I guess I will just have to go to TSC tomorrow... [​IMG]

    Quote:Did you chicks arrive safely? Mine were supposed to ship today from Welp, but they didn't email (apparently they only email if there is a problem) and I am not sure how long they will be in transit. Figures we got snow today... at least it didn't stick.
