Using a plastic tote as a hover brooder?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if it would work using a plastic tote upside down with openings so they can come in and out as they want? You think the plastic would hold the heat? It would be in a shed. Any ideas or input would be appreciated.

If it wasn't too hot .. if it was too hot they wouldn't stay in there long..
Usally a bit box works put light on one side so they can come and go or stay in between. .there comfort zone
