    Here are some pics of a brooder I built earlier this year. Its 5ft tall and 4ft wide and 2ft deep. It has drip pans underneath each level also.
    Hope it helps you out some. Oh yeah, I built it on rollers also so its easy to move around. Because its heavy!

    Forgot also, I drilled large holes in the end of each compartment of the brooder for a light to be used.
