    I am looking to build a plywood brooder complete with a thermostat. Does anyone know of any plans out there to build something like that?

    Have you checked out the brooders section of the coops section, in the brown bar at the top of the page?

    I have seen the mentioned pictures. The problem is that I am going to be hatching in January/ February, so in Canada that means about -30. I need to design something that is completely closed in and able to keep the chicks warm. Any ideas for that type of thing???????
