    xtetra Out Of The Brooder

    Rookie chick raiser here. My chicks are about a week and a half old. They are in a large metal tub and are OK for space at the moment. I'm thinking of adding six more chicks before they get any older and am building a larger 2'x4' brooder out of wood for all of them. (Should be finished tomorrow evening.)

    So I need to prepare a stage two brooder for when they are bigger in a few weeks right? I was looking for guidelines for space requirements for the stage two brooder but haven't seen any. Maybe I just over-looked them somewhere....

    Anyway, any suggestions?
