DIY brooder lamp holder

My husband built this for my baby chicks.  It took him about 20-30 min to build it.  (most of that time was spent trying to open the PVC cement container).  wink.png

 

It is designed to put outside the brooder and hang over.  The chain can be lowered or raised to control the temp.

Very neat idea! 

Currently keeping a flock of 14 chickens, one rooster and 13 hens.  I have three Easter Eggers, three Golden Buffs, two Marans and six Buff Brahmas.  My hobbies are gardening, chicken keeping, and beekeeping.  I'm married with two sons, a step son and daughter, and two really cute grandkids!

Where did your husband get the lamp cage/reflector/bulbholding thing?  Thanks

I have a couple questions about your brooder light stand if your willing to share.  What size of pipe did you use?  Did you have to weight the base down?  I would also be interested to know in more detail how the chain is attached.

 

Thanks

Susan
