Man chicks stink! Truly. The wyandottes are 5.5 weeks and the amber white and Easter egger are 3.5 weeks and it’s time to go outside. It’s a little early for the little ones, but they have 3 big girls and their EcoGlow (warmer) and are doing just fine. Their old brooder (a rabbit cage) was getting too small, so I moved them to this franken-brooder. It’s a baby cage with a tarp wrapped around it to keep out the wind and keep the shavings in.  They have a tarp on the top to help retain warmth, but there is still an area not covered by the tarp on the front to maintain good ventilation.
