    I went searching for ideas for a peachick brooder/pen and couldn't find much, so I though I would share what I just finshed. Few things left to do, but it's 5' h x 5' l x 3' w. It has a drawer with a vinyl floor for cleaning out, since it's in my workshop. Should work for a few peas until they can be on the ground. Any suggestions welcome...

    My only suggestion would be to put something around the heat lamp.
    My young pair tried to fly often, but weren't that graceful at it. You don't want one trying to fly around and land on it... or get spooked & fly up into the heat lamp... ouch!
    If you can put some kind of guard around the lamp that won't get hot, then it looks like a great brooder!
