I helped my father in law clean up his shop and I saw these cabinets. There are 5 total and he said I could have them! I think they would make great brooders for day olds to 5 week olds! what do you all think?
Project done! It took about 2 hours from start to finish. The top brooder is 3x4 and the bottom is 4x4. I have a HUGE hatch coming up of 12 dozen RSL and I needed brooders bad These are #2 + #3. I also have a 3x7 brooder that will shortly become a double decker as well! Here are the pictures!
I will take 1 door off on each one and make a top out of hardware cloth. I will put a heat lamp on the screen and cover the screen with cardboard if it gets really cold. I hope to have them in the coop with heat lamps at about 5-6 weeks. I am really for these 12 dozen eggs to hatch!
