    That's a great idea! And they'll get to know each other before they are mixed in. Great idea!

    Awesome! I need to divide my week old's from my freshly hatched. I've tried boxes and other things only to have issues...

    I have some old window screens, so I will have try that!

    Now, why couldn't I have that earlier?[​IMG]

    Looks great!

    I use an old oven rack to divide the brooder.

    Forgot to subscribe.....

    If any of you have seen my video, you've seen how big the brooder I use is. I gotta go thru my junk pile when I get home find a screen big enough.
