My clever mother designed this DIY chicken brooder with bits and pieces she had lying around. Over the course of raising several batches of chickens, she has improved it to the point where it is ready to share with you lovely folk.
This last week she picked up 80 day old chicks – 20 commercial meat chickens and 60 layers. They all fit in here quite happily, with plenty of room to spare. This DIY chicken brooder is so clever – it expands as they grow!
