    I had an old port a crib that I used when I was a baby. I turned it into a brooder hutch for my baby chicks. When they reach feather stage then they go out to the outside brooder coop..I made a hardware cloth window so my mini pin can check on them..lol..I had used priority boxes to use as cardboard..I had 2 wooden boards lefted over from a project to set my water jar and feeders on..I have used cedar shavings for years and have not lost a chick to eating the stuff...

    Cool I've seen many people set up brooders like that one you have.
