I got tired of constantly having to adjust the height of the heat lamp to maintain the proper temperature. Buy a commercial brooder was way out of my budget so I built one based on a 30"x30" tray from a rabbit hutch. That cost me $17. Everything else was either scrape from jobs or items I already had.

Hopefully these pictures might help someone else build a brooder.
