    Here are some pics of a pickup bed trailer with a camper shell that I made into a brooder pen. The trailer didn't follow well and was just sitting around the yard so I made use of it. The windows slide open and have chicken wire over them for ventilation and I attached the feeder to the ceiling of it. I just moved my chicks out of it and will now be using it as a quarantine pen for a bit for a rooster that is coming to stay with us for a while.

    I like that it is mobile. I had it at the other end of my pasture this summer and out of the way, but for the winter I brought it up close so I don't have to shovel all the way out to it.

    Quote:MissPrissy- it would work very well for that- especially if it was from a full sized truck. We put a tarp down the middle and put the bedding on it so that all we have to do is drag the tarp out and carry it over to the mulch pile to clean it out. I have thought of putting meaties in it myself.
