    I have made a new brooder from a Styrofoam container, it is huge 42x35x39 i lined it with cardboard and i must say this is most likely the best brooder i have ever made and it was free!! I have 5 grown and will get 6 more chicks to add to them.

    pic s to follow.

    I like this idea! It's also relatively lightweight as well I bet! Mine is super heavy because I made it out of scrap lumber. I don't know how I manage to move it around like I do. [​IMG]Styrofoam is also easier to clean! :) Good job!
