We were brooding 25 CX chicks in an attached garage using a cardboard box from a double wide refridge, and with deep bedding. Wrong time of year, but now we're committed or need to be. Our first for time for CX. The smell was just too much, it was coming into the house like Bill Cosby's Chicken Heart that ate Phili. They are not feathered enough for the tractor yet. Our temporary solution was to borrow a 5 X 10 foot utility trailer and convert it to a deep bedding brooder. Currently using a 250 watt red heat bulb and tarp. It is too warm 60 degree's at the feeders. So will reduce bulb to 100 watt. Although with 25 birds (65 - 75 pounds) they are probably creating enough heat on their own. Thoughts on that? https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/110490_dsc_0222.jpg https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/110490_dsc_0224.jpg https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/110490_dsc_0226.jpg https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/110490_dsc_0227.jpg Hope that they feather pretty soon.
