Well, with the 10 chicks here, and the other new ones coming tomorrow, I thought Id try my handy work out and build an addition onto the coop. My brainy idea was to build a brooder attached to the coop sharing a chicken wire wall so that new chicks and older chicks can become friends. Well, got it built, and 4 hours later it looks just dandy. Pretty good carpentry, If I dont say so myself! But the problem is that I could have waited because with it chilly outside again (in the low 50s today) I cant get the temp much over 70 in it, so I cant put the babies out there anyway. Man....that erks me! Now I've got the cardboard box brooder in the house divided in half so I can keep the pullets apart from the Cornish, since some of the pullets are also white. Now they dont have nearly as much room as they would outside, but I cant risk it because its too cold and they'd never make it long anyway. So....I'm back to square one with babies in the house again. On a side note, I've built the additional brooder so that it can double as a breeder pen too. I'm trying to think a little ahead...lol Thanks for lettin me vent this. My DH is gone and no one else listens to my babble about chickens! Thanks guys!
