Ok, hopefully the third time is a charm. I have been trying to respond to you but my posts are going into the great beyond.
My husband is in California for the week but when he gets back I can try to write down how he made the brooder if you want. He used 4x8 OSB 5/8s inch thick, 2x4s for the framing of the base and the "legs", 2x2s for the upper supports for the wire. We have added a feeding platform to try and cut down on waste. It has been working great! It is a piece of OSB cut to fit one end with a 2x4 support under the open end. I topped it with a 3x4 rubber stall mat. The feed that they spill they mostly clean up on their own and at cleaning time I just sweep the mess up. The ducklings are 5/6 weeks now and getting big but they still seem to have plenty of room.
Hopefully the pictures I took this morning will work now.
I have also started putting stall pellets in the bottom of their water catch pan. It has made carrying the pan outside so much easier and it has really cut down on any smell from poopy, feed crumby spilled water.
