    I have chicks due to hatch this weekend, so had to move my TSC chicks to a bigger brooder. They were getting too crowded in the one they were in anyway so it was time to move them. They now have a 4x4 pen, but its colder down there so I had to put an extra light on them. Now I'm running down stairs every hour to check on them. They love their new pen. Lots more room, and they have a stick that they can perch on and try to fly off of. So funny to watch them try out their new wings. their wings look lik they are way too big for the chicks. They are 2/3 weeks old. Here's a photo of them in their new house.

    They are so cute! Do you have them in the starter kit that came from TSC?

    No, I used to show dogs and have several pens of diff sizes that I can set up. They started out in a 3x3 puppy play pen, and now are in a larger x-pen. I just line them with cardboard to help keep the heat in, and keeps my cats away from the chicks.
