Built a brooder over the last couple days with some new but mostly scrap wood I already had. Its based on a design I found here on BYC. Its kind of a two part brooder which removes from the base so I can take them out to play in the grass some as they grow. Half of it has a bottom and a larger half is bottomless. Its about 2ft by 5ft, and about 2ft tall. Please note, I'm not a carpenter, so some parts are a little off and some things are a little crooked, but overall I'm pleased with my attempt. I got 5 Buff Orpingtons and 5 Barred Rocks from the local co-op today. I still have to add a top, and will finish up tomorrow.
