    Built our official Brooder today!! We started out with a large tub [​IMG]

    After we decided we wanted to get bigger we decided to go all out!! The brooder is 5 feet tall by 6 feet long, and its 29" wide. (The width made it easiest to get theough door way ) Took us most of the day, used 4x4s for corners and 2x4 for sides it is inside our enclosed coop. Used large L brackets to hold food and water. Second floor will have a light mounted inside and and, food and water feeders added to make a second Brooder underneath! I am totally in love!!! Can't wait to get more chick's no that I have more room!

    I love it! Especially like how the brooder has lots of doors for easy access :)
