My chicks that I ordered from Estes will be here by Wednesday. I'm so excited!!! My brooder is ready. I have the food mixed to the proper ratio. I have the ACV and garlic infusing in the refrigerator. I bought a bale of hay for the bedding. I'm set...I think...lol The kids are so excited about the chicks coming, but admittedly I think that I am more excited than they are. We have decided to separate out the chicks that we purchased as broilers. But I have a question about space. How much space do you need after a couple of weeks for 25 chicks? What size brooder do I need to build for them as they get bigger and when can they move to their permanent place outside?
