    There are all sorts of things you can use for a brooder. I've used Rubbermaid totes with vent holes cut in, card board boxes, rabbit or guinea pig cages and hutches, I've even seen people use laundry baskets flipped upside down.

    It doesn't have to be fancy. Just warm, draft free and spacious. Good luck with your chicks when they come. Happy hatching!
