    Well, my wife felt sorry for her ducks out in the brooder because they were quickly outgrowing it, so she went to the store today and bought a child's play yard (the plastic fence). She took the boys' plastic sandbox turtle and put water in it for the ducks and set a tarp down on the garage floor and put pine shavings on that. The chicks are in there in the pics because I was cleaning out their brooder. Enjoy!

    Great idea! My chicks are outgrowing their second brooder and I need to do something SOON! The play yard would be great. I have a big dog pen that I'll probably use. It's about that size.
