I've read so many postings lately that I can't find one I was telling Hubby about. Someone made a brooder coop out of tubs they got at Wal-Mart (I think). Cut out part of the tops and placed wire-netting on it (for ventilation?). Then took the brooder lamps, put some kind of plumber's brackets to set them on the wire-netting. The chicks went to the wire-netting side to get warm, and on the other side was the food and water. I promised Hubby I'd show him the pics but now can't find the thread. Anybody? I bought a tub at Wally yesterday so now we just have to cut out the part and attach the wire netting. We're going to use wooden blocks to prop up the broody lamp tho. Your input would be appreciated although we have 22-23 days before our chicks get here! Thanks!
