mini-enclosure for our
new chick coop is retired for now.
We were planning on using it
to capture some heat from the Eco-Glow brooder in case the
night time temperature dropped below 50.
Turns out the big, green,
plastic tub was too scary for our chick's first day. Just a few went
under it, and they only stayed for a brief moment before scooting back
to the bunched up flock in the corner. Maybe a small night light would
make it look more cozy? Now that they're older it's not as big of an
issue and the weather forecast calls for warm nights in the near future.
