SWIMMING POOL BROODER
I usually just use a large cardboard box to brood chicks, but after taking some pics yesterday of some 1 week old Cornish X, it hit home how fast they were outgrowing my normal box brooder. After a trip to the local Dollar store, and some creative cardboard and tape work, I ended up with this....
This is 5 foot diameter plastic pool ($20), with 36 inch cardboard walls. With the exception of the pool, everything else is shed scrounge.
Well, that didn't last long. Today, I am turning one end of the "common pen" into a grow out pen for the meatball chickens.
