    Helllllo! I just wanted to share my brooder extension for my 8 ladies who are going on their 5th week. It's made of all scrap materials from our coop build, and a set of end tables we were going to throw away anyway. Took a vacation day for some mental health, ie. power tools therapy :celebrate . The ladies are currently in my spare bedroom. Along with the craziest amount of dust I have ever witnessed. This weekend they will be moved into our garage with the added extension. They're in a tote, roughly 4'x2' and 36" deep but it's getting too small. The peeps were adorable, still are, just not at 4am lol. Thanks for looking! Namasté!

    Namasté! - Cool re-use of old furniture, it looks very solid and easy to understand how you screwed things together. We have some crap cabinets too…
