the brooder is great!!!
i love the thermometer and the high sides.
mine is a circle made of 24 inch wide gi metal about 6 feet in diameter, Made from GI as the rats cant climb it. I am going to need a second one. I will probably do something like yours, elevate it and rat proof the legs instead. The GI sheet makes a heck of a noise when touched. scares the devil out of the little blighters
tell those girls to keep on layin'
mine is 2' tall 2' deep & a little over 4' long
the lid doesn't fit like you would think it would
there is a 1" air gap , there is also a small gap on the ends up near the top
i may add some ajustable vents once warm weather arrives
it will hold 50 little ones with no trouble
once they are about 4 weeks old i'll transfer them to the almost empty woodshed
i'll keep em penned up there till i sell off the pullets & put the little roos in my soon to be built
meatie roo tractor, we are going to fill up the freezer with all the extra boys once we fatten em on up
