    I made this blueprint of the brooder boxes I make and use. It costs about $50 for everything. I use a water heater thermostat and 2 keyless ceramic sockets with bulbs for the heat source. I hope it helps. I cant get the image any bigger if you cant zoom in enough send me your email and I will email it you. I hope it helps. Thanks

    Looks like you thought this through pretty well! You might consider reformatting as a two page in portrait.

    Thanx for sharing!

    Do you think you could post a picture of the brooder itself? It looks really cool and I like how it doesnt cost a lot!

    Hey, nice brooder! I noticed you used "rabbit wire." Will 1/2" hardware cloth suffice? I have some chicks due to hatch in about 10 days so I need to get right on it! [​IMG]

    Quote:You can enlarge it by stretch/skew you will find it under image section then when ever you open it just start putting in numbers till you gt ity big enough then save as (w/e) that should do the trick for you good luck.
