My brooder set up (they've been off heat for about 5 days - "hardening off")....clueless that their lives are about to change!

At 3 weeks old, feathering nicely and getting big.

That's a nice brooder.
Thanks! It was part of a walkway attached to our house when we bought it (there was an older lady who lived here before). We removed it to build a bigger deck last summer and my husband turned it into a brooder with the addition of some linoleum on the deck boards. Works great and fit perfectly in the "working" part of the coop.
