Portable brooder for ducks

With the ducks arriving today,  we need a place to put them.  The barn brooder is full of baby turkeys so where do you put 150 ducklings?  We chose to convert one portable pen to a portable brooder.

2 sheets of plywood on a 4x4 runner  with a couple 2x4 support runners and we have a solid wood floor. Add a heating system and there's a completely safe portable brooder. 

I had plenty of help placing nails and screws so it took a little longer than expected,  but finished in just a few hours.
