As much as I love backyard chickens and chicks, we don’t always have chicks on the homestead, thus don’t need a brooder box all the time. It took some thinking, but I finally came up with a design that works perfectly for us. Behold, the DIY Folding Chick Brooder.
We’ve raised four different batches of chicks and this is the year I’ve made an official chick brooder box. I used the tutorial from Fresh Eggs Daily and I was very pleased so I figured I would share my own results.
