I brought my lil chickadees, home last friday, so far they have been doing great in a large tote, i fill with pine shavings, and clean daily, food, water, they have a heat lamp, and i have a plastic gate pinned down on the top. I have them outside, in their run at min two hours a day in the evening so they can free range, and get used to their run, and outside noises, They've been doing great., I was reading a few threads, and now realize i need to UPGRADE their brooder. right now its a large tote, Im going to make it a probably 2x3 tall box with a heat lamp, fenced top, and pine shavings. my question is this, WHAT else should be in there? Should they have roosts? and if so, how many and in what design? does anyone have some pictures of what their brooders look like for their older chicks? I am just trying to get ideas? O btw, I only have three baby chix 2 rhode island reds, and one white leghorn, almost two weeks old.
