    I got this from a friend and am planning on using it as a brooder when my chicks arrive the first week of November. The only problem I see is there's only one slide up door on left side. So it will make cleaning and getting the chicks out (as I'd imagine they will run to opposite side) kind of hard. And ideas how I could improve this? Since it's already built lol

    It looks like the top trim and wire could be removed. Then make a removable top out of the wire and little new lumber.

    That said, it's small so your chicks will outgrow it pretty fast. I wouldn't mess with modifying it for the short time they'll be in it.
