There is a chicken swap meet this Sunday at a local tractor supply. We are going to see if we can find chicks there for the breeds we want. Then we will order hatching eggs for the breeds we cant find. Therefore, I need a brooder box ready for Sunday! I went dig in my scrap wood pile to gather supplies. This is what I came up with so far. Found an old light socket in the random stuff box in the shop and put it in there. Tommorow it gets left over paint on the outside. I'll have to buy some wire for the underside and window. I might put some of that pink foam board on the wire floor for the first week or 2. Temps have been in the upper 60s to upper 80s during the night and day lately. What else does a brooder box need?
