    And here's the new brooder mini-project ... (I have added cardboard to the front to about 6 inches, as I forgot about drafts when I cut the front. My bad.

    Almost done ... Just a few details to keep critters out. The bottom has also been enclosed in hardware cloth for a mini-run until the weather gets good enough to start on the 9'x6' run.

    Love the windows!!! Can't tell from the pictures, do you have hardware cloth up by the roof? Would hate for you to loss your chickens to
    a predator.

    This pic doesn't show it, but we have since added facia and soffit boards up at the top, with cutouts for ventilation lined with hardware cloth. Believe me, I am driving my hubbie CRAZY with the predator proofing. He thinks it's overkill, but I'd rather overkill than KILL. They won't be spending the night out there until I seal it up tight! Thanks for the question though. Two heads are better than one.
