The Brooder Boxes have Arrived!

Granddaddy worked pretty hard to get the brooder boxes constructed for us. You can see in the photo that we only helped with some final details. They will double as brooder boxes where we will keep the chicks nice and warm and after 3 or 4 weeks we will open the box up so they can get some fresh air on the other end.

We have the brooders in place now thanks to our friend Ronnie K. coming over to help Stephen move them. We are trying to decide what color we want to paint them and we are also waiting for the heaters to come in so we can get them set up. One final detail will be the bracing around the legs of the boxes - if we don't get that done, we might have to get Granddaddy to do a bit more work!
