New brooder for the chicks

Friday, May 6, 2011
Well, the babies are doing just fine. They started in a 30 gallon tote and in just 5 days they were getting to big to be in it

so they got moved in to there new brooder.
They will stay in this one in the house till the night time temp are high enough for them to be outside over night without a heat light. I dont' have a 100 ft cord to go to the hen house to use a heat lamp out there with all the rain that we are getting. Here is a picture of the little ones, looks to be 5 hens and 6 roosters but not sure till they grow up.
