My wonderful DH decided that it was time to add a permanent brooder to the coop now that I have my incubator. I guess that is my "okay" to just keep hatching chicks! We can't ever have it empty, can we?!?! The top lifts open so I can get into it for easy feeding, etc... He even built a slide out bottom into it for easy cleaning! Pardon the poo on top. My 10 wk. olds think the brooder is their roost. I had to add this picture! I love how my little girls are peeking out at me!
