Peckingcease Brooder

    I integrated 3 new chicks into a flock which were 3 week old at the time. I did not desire purchasing new sets of everything, and thus explored my garage of remnants from projects to build a brooder. Their transition was smooth and they loved the extra room- hence "PeckingCease". I added some intermediate roost areas which will be rendered useless as they age (some are too high), but made them look uniquely like parakeets while they were young. This Brooder was exceptionally easy to build with the right minimal tools. Hope you like it.

    No real description on how the brooder was put together or what type of heat source provided. It looks like it works well, just not very instructional or helpful to anyone wishing to build a brooder.
