    That's my new single brooder. I also have a double brooder of a similar style, that can be one or two brooders depending on whether the middle section is open or closed. The roofs need to be replaced, and some of the siding too, but otherwise they're sturdy and I'm very excited. Look how much space they have!

    They are not ready for nighttime use, but I think they're reasonably safe for daytime. The ducklings were getting crowded and were constantly wet in their rubbermaid brooder, so these came just in time.

    They love the heat lamp:

    Can you tell which one is Chance? Me neither. [​IMG] He still wobbles & limps, but basically keeps up with the others. I'm so delighted.

    Very nice brooder. Looks like it has plenty of room for them.

    Looks really good, i prefer brooders made from wire and wood to boxes or other home made implaments, what type of ducks do you have in there?
