    Well we have five cornish x chicks that are one week old and they're temp (in the brooder) is now at 89f.
    {Now's why I say 'Uh-Oh'}
    We didn't even think about this till last night; We ordered day old chicks that must be kept at (90-100) and we only have one brooder and they come tomorrow!

    But! We have come up with the solution! MAKE A NEW BROODER! (duh...) [​IMG]

    I will post pics tonight when we have it built! But now it's off to lowes for some stuff...

    FIRST>>

    You put your right wing in,
    You put your right wing out,
    You put your left wing in,
    And you shake it all about,
    You do the hokey pokey
    and you turn yourself around
    That what it's all about!
