    Do you think this is acceptable until I set up the big dog crate? I have an early hatchet trying to get out of the shell now and don't have the main brooder out if storage yet, should be able to have it ready for day 21. I'm on day 19 now. I will check the temp. I am more concerned that there's enough space to get away from the heat but that the food and water isn't too far from the heat and prevent the hope-to-be-soon chick can get to it all

    Looks good to me. As long as there's food, water and heat it's a brooder in my book. [​IMG]

    If you're bored will you look at my bad pip thread? I'm worried that it's struggling to get out, I think its using a wing to pip, is that normal? Thank you!
