    My incubator is in my kitchen where I can keep an eye on it...oh and my dog can also!

    then my chicks in their 2 week brooder so I can enjoy them again in my kitchen...

    and now they are in the large double dog crate brooder in the basement...talk about chick dust!!!! wow! I would be killed if they were still in the house...

    Hi! Did you get your eggs ok?
    I keep my brooders in my garage. I am lucky because my hubby has a large shop and so the attached 2 car garage is mine. [​IMG] Sometimes I have had absolutely no walking space in there! te he

    Brood out in the barn. Did the garage one time and a) my wife wasn't pleased with having her car dispossessed and b) the dust was insane.

    The incubators go in the incubation chamber (my closet), that has no room for anything else now. My brooders go in the garage in the winter, and in the shed for spring.

    First week or two, in moving box brooders in living room, then graduate to larger tub-brooders in living room, then the Preschool Brooder that I built, out in the garage. From there, outdoors to their coop!

    My incubators are in the house. The one that is currently running site on top of the dryer. My BIG brooder ( a large brower) is in my feed room. It is not being used now - not until I can move it to a more secure location. I just can't keep the darn snakes out of it [​IMG] The one I am currently using is a laundry sink in my laundry room. Hubby made me a heavy wire lid and have a heat lamp over it. At a few weeks they are moved to the grow out pen outside. I really wish I had my brower back [​IMG]

    Brooders are kept in the garage until they get old enough to be moved outside in the wire brooders.

    Incubators are kept in the basement/office area.
