    Here is my attempt at making a 2 phase brooder. These are made from some an old hifi unit and a book case.
    The top area on the left will house my new born chicks for the 1st 2 weeks. The bottom area will house the chicks until they are roughly about 6 to 8 weeks, the bottom area will have a light suspended above the wire mesh on the right.
    Opinions appreciated please good or bad :) i am fairly thick skinned so fire away :)

    Looks functional, very nice looking though. Only way to really find out though is give it a go with some chicks.
