I thought I would post these picks so you won't make the same mistakes I did in the past. The first pic is of my new babies when I first picked them up from the hatchery. Some of you are probably having yours shipped and will come in similar cartons. If you don't have a big enough brooder prepared you will find yourself like me building a new one. The second and third pics are of my 4 week old chicks that I picked up 4 weeks ago! That is 4 weeks of growth! Love my girls but they do grow really fast! So I guess my point is build your brooder bigger from the start!
