    I have searched the internet over and over and I cannot find the plans I'm looking for. The brooder I liked was the one that had the removable waste tray and you could also remove the wire tray (that the chics stand on). It looked really well set up and easy to clean. Another point I liked, it looked like it would last many seasons. This is a link to the brooder I'm interested in, but they want $140ish for the plans alone. Anyone have any good ideas, hopefully something similar to this?

    I think the BIY plans are $7, the $140 is for the brooder if they build it?

    That would make sense. Please don't let this reflect on my intelligence level. :p
