I wanted to share this with all you chickie lovers! My extra fancy-schmancy brooder delux! I had a drysink in my living room and I made a frame for it, put cardboard on the sides, put the little "bedroom" w/ heatlamp inside the box. Put a layer of plastic on the bottom and shavings on top. At first I covered it all with plastic to keep the entire area warm, but Beep is 1 month so there is only heat in the box. His toys inside the box are: a mirror, 2 fake birdies w/feathers on them and a tunnel, just big enough for him to crawl into, I made w/ cardboard and covered it with polar fleece. On the floor of the box I put feathers I gleaned from the chickens at the stables where my horse lives. I glued then to cardboard. And, a roosting pole. I also have a dimmer switch so I am starting to turn down the heat on him. I got just a wee bit carried away, but he is an only child.
