I have a large dog kennel that I plan on making a brooder out of. My dog hates it so it's been sitting empty for over a year. I'm gettting 6 sex-link pullets. I know it's big enough when I get them, but for how long do you think I can keep them in there and will be happy? =Gaaahhh, I'm so nervous. I wasn't this nervous with any of my kids. Also I bought a waterer and a feeder that is round and you put a canning jar on. is that big enough for 6 chicks?
