The new chick brooder

 The new brooder is here!  And not a moment to soon!  As I explained in the last post...  The chicks have grown so fast they are escaping the water trough and roaming our home!

This new design has the following features :


wire bottom easily detachable for cleaning/moving

Sold sides to block cold wind  and escaping chicks

Plenty of room at 8x8 yet light weight

Solid roof to block rain

Lots of ventilation

Hinged top for easy access

Overall it is like he best design so far!  Now we can add heaters,  water,  bedding,  and chicks!

Special thanks to Bradley and Tiffany for making this happen so quickly!
