This is the most beautiful brooder I’ve seen yet! It is actually the example I used to show my husband what I wanted for a brooder! Do you have the measurements for this (ie: length,width height)? It just looks so perfect.
Tiffany— I’m glad you like the brooder cage. I sure do still! I can’t seem to remember to measure it to tell you exactly, but size is really your choice. The one we based this one on was much bigger than ours. I’m glad my husband didn’t make this one any bigger because I can no longer lift it easy. It is about 18 inches by 36inches long, by 12 inches high. There is no bottom. That is the beauty of it. I sit it on a tarp, put down bedding how I want. When it is time to clean, I take the chicks and put them in a box, lift up the cage, fold the tarp inward to hold the bedding, take it outside to dump in the compost pile. I also take the cage and set it outside— going to do that today— so the biddies can peck around on the ground. And I’d best get at it. God bless you on your venture. CurtissAnn
Such a great job of making the brooder box, your kids are so lucky!
Thanks, Gale. I do feel fortunate my husband made the brooder. We’ve used it each year since, plus used it as a sick cage, too. I’m getting ready to use it in another month for a fresh little flock of chickies.
