    so the issue around town is where and when to get a brooder box well i thought it might be a good idea to get a pallet from local landfill so here is a list :

    - get three good pallets from where ever me local landfill
    - also look for a pallet that had a plywood bottom meaning one that is made with plywood
    - brake apart pallets
    - use the three pallets upper and lower slats on the sides
    - use the middle supports braces for corner
    - use the middle supports for the floor too
    - had a extra upper slat and used it as a light support
    - sometimes you can get lucky and find some old chicken wire
    - did buy a heat lamp and a bulb plus some pine chips
    - total 15.00 for a new brooder box
