    I know I saw this topic somewhere, but I can't find it now.

    So, I was wondering if you guys would like to post pics of your brooders?
    Looking for ideas, as right now mine is a large dog crate. It's working well, so far.

    The reason for multiple bulbs is to better control heat by using different combinations of wattages.
    5x8 utility trailer, in the barn or in the garage. Lots of room for 10-24 chicks and keeps dust and smell out of the house.
    At 5 1/2 weeks, they go out to the barn, and I just pull the trailer out to the garden and sweep out the litter. Done.
