    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! [​IMG] 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! [​IMG]

    Pardon the poo on top. My 10 wk. olds think the brooder is their roost. [​IMG]

    I had to add this picture! I love how my little girls are peeking out at me! [​IMG]

    That is too cute. I guess DH is a good guy. And a slide out poo tray, he even thinks of the details!

    Take yours and add wheels - you got mine.

    I cover mine with bubble wrap for insulation and use a heat lamp - the birds stay outside on the patio through most any SC weather.

    I like that! If I had room, I'd love a brooder in the coop.

    Thank you all! I don't know if I truly had "enough" room, Cyn. I just like that I have a permanent spot to put my babies! [​IMG]

    That's the way I did it too, but my DH hasn't gotten me a incubator yet.
