What are the space requirements for chicks up to 6 and 1/2 weeks or so? Thanks
Its hard to provide numbers because they grow so fast during the 6 1/2 weeks time frame you mentioned. My brooder is 3' by about 1.5'. I can put 26 day-old chicks in that and worry that they'll get lost in it. By the time they are 4 weeks old, just four of them look kind of cramped. I've never kept chicks indoors past four weeks old so I wouldn't even want to guess how small that space would look by 6 1/2 weeks.....
