In the Brooder
- Oct 27, 2018
So my mother went a little OTT while buying hatching eggs and now we have an abundance of (almost) hatching chicks. We have got 27 hatching soon and we’ve been wracking W our brains on where to put them all. We have a sturdy wooden pen built for them and we would usually keep them in the barn outside with a hot plate brooder but it’s winter at the moment and we were worrying if the chicks would get too cold, even with the heat plate. I would also like to say that it can drop to 1 degree Celsius at night.
