    The cat in the box is Queenie the little black one is Tippy

    That will make a good brooder won't it?

    That will work fine. I also used something like that years ago and they worked out great.

    That's a real nice box, and cute kitties -- looks like you might need to bring another box home for them. [​IMG]
     
  5. Looks alot like the one I just brought home!! Mine is 3/4 inch plywood, @ 2X3. Just finished painting it and thinking I'll make it into an inicubator instead. Have you ordered chicks yet, and how long do you think you will be able to keep say 14 chicks in one this size???? .......stan

    I'm in the process of turning an old dresser I snagged from the curb into a giant brooder!!!
