Brooder door

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I'm constructing an outdoor brooder for my chicks  It's an old workbench I've had sitting for years in my storage shed I have an idea of what I want but am having trouble finding the parts necessary  I have a dog to keep other predators away but although the dog doesn't seem too interested in the chicks she has killed one of my adult chickens before  It needs to keep a dog out and not chicks in! I would like to find some edging, preferably metal instead of plastic to surround the opening and reinforce the door. Or any other ideas out there to build the door. Also a latch and hinge and way to mount it to the hardware cloth. This is what I have so far.

I decided to frame the door with 2x3 lumber rather than take a chance on something else.
