DIY Brooder


To house our little chicks, we made a brooder based on some ideas and recommendations from other folks. Using a rubbermaid container and plastic screening, we made a top that will provide good air flow.


We also installed a small dowel rod so the little chickies can practice roosting. Won't that be too cute?!

A work lamp will provide heat and a handy thermometer will make sure they do not get too warm.

We hope to pick up our babies tomorrow.
