I have 26 chicks 6 days old and already outgrowing their brooder,space wise. I have another of the same size. Could I put them side by side and split the chicks up/? Could I switch them around several times a day so they would stay used to each other? It would only be for another week,then they will be too big,again. I'm using a clear wrapping paper plastic tote and I have another one. We have a very large wooden box we will use ,eventually,but these totes are just so easy! My youngest son has severe mental retardation and autism, so easy is my favorite word.But only if the chicks will be okay.
