I've never hatched out little chicks so this is all very new to me and I'm looking for your experience and advice.

Any ideas on the best design for a little brooder that maybe I could easily carry outside on warm days?

What about a large box like a watermelon box or something like that? I have an old baby gate (corral) that is six sided and works great for a brooder.

Thanks. that baby gate sounds great. I was researching ideas and I could also uses a cardboard box, temporarily at least. I really don't think I need to spend big bucks for this. From what I'm reading it'll be about 8 weeks... give or take.
