I am going to get my first set of chicks in a few weeks. Trying to set up a proper area for the chicks. My husband has a brand new parts washer tub he hasn't used yet. It seems perfect for a brooder. It is on a stand, has a lid, even a drain hole to clean everything out when we are done But, then I got to wondering if the color would be bad. It is very pretty - a beautiful shiny red. I remember that the birds peck at red - thinking it is blood. What do you think?
