So I ordered 12 day-old chicks from mypetchicken. They shipped today and should be here Wednesday morning. I put up my MHP last night but figured out I over engineered it. So today I tore it apart and simplified it. I'm getting better heat already. I "built" my little brooder area. It's roughly 7 foot by 5 foot and 23 inches high, excluding the MHP area. I will add chicken wire as a cover. I have puppy pads on the floor now (under the panels to help protect the floor) and I will cover it with pine shavings after I am getting anxious!
