    We created a home made brooder out of an old kitchen table.

    Cardboard walls were duct taped to the circumfrance of the table top.

    An infared light was suspended from the rafters.

    Thin [0.7mil] plastic was hung from the rafters such that it touched the outside of the cardboard walls.

    This is a very draft free arangement.

    April 24th 2011 - Update - Built a bigger brooder with poultry mesh floor - dropping fall through onto a shower curtain, this makes it much easier to clean.
    Here is a link to some pictures posted on Flickr.
