Our little chicks (6 Buff Orpingtons, 1 Golden Laced Wyandotte, and 1 Black Sex-link) were growing so fast, so we decided to build a bigger brooder to let them run around and fly as much as they wanted to without running into eachother! So, we came up with a design, gathered up the materials (thankfully we didn't have to buy anything!) Then put it together! They absolutely LOVE it!
Measure and cut the top
Great job Austin!
Time to put the perch in!
He's got good eyeballs!
This is the size difference!
It's a peep show!
Here's the door we put in on the side
Buttercup, not so sure she wants to hop out!
I had to bribe them with some oats!
Daisy is the first on the perch!
My little Buttercup actually ran to me when I called her! They are so happy!
Now, for the coop... This is gonna be fun!
