So DH and I are trying to build a small brooder out of pvc pipe. We have all the supplies (I think) but I can run out for additional supplies if needed. What we are constructing is a 2x4 box (rectangle really) and will line it with a combo of hardware wire (on the bottom) and chicken wire (sides and top). We started yesterday and have the frame all ready but now DH has lost steam and frankly, I just want to finish it up so I thought I'd take a shot while he is at work today. DH, although very capable, is not very motivated and I have a feeling this project will fall by the same way as many others and go unfinished for days/weeks if I don't step up and complete. My question is HOW do I attach the wire to this cage? Specifically, how can I attached the wire to the pcv pipe? The pipe on the bottom is 3/4" and the side pieces are 1/2" so I think for the chicken wire around the sides/top I can just bend it around and at the pipes use zip ties to attach but how would I attach the bottom wire to the pipe? The hardware wire is much more sturdy for the chicks to walk on but it doesn't seem like it will bend around to tie to the pipe, not sure how else to attach. Any ideas? Anyone else made a brooder out of pvc have any suggestions? thanks in advance!
