I order my chicks today from Ideal. They will be here in three weeks. Can you all give me some ideas for a brooder for 25-30 little ones, standard chicks not bantams? I was thinking of doing the kids swimming pool idea, but thought maybe you all had something easier without having to buy the swimming pool. DH could build a brooder box, but I've given him so many things to do lately that I would like to let him continue getting his shop organized. We just moved in a month ago. I've got a plastic storage bin 30" x 24" and 24" height, but I think that would be too small. I've got the lamp, thermometer, waterer, and feeder ready to go, just need ideas for the structure. Also, does it have to be round or can it be rectangle? Thanks. By the way this is Leigha, I can't seem to log in.
