As noted in my last post, the chickens are testing out their new wings and let's just say that the old brooder house wasn't going to make it much longer, at least not with the chickens inside of it.

So with that being said, my sons and I decided to build a Binford 2000 model brooder house.  As you can see from the photos and video below, it's quite the condominium.   The new sprawling digs measure in at 4' x 8' x 4.25'  (W x L x H) and include a stick-down vinyl floor (for easy clean-up) and two roosts (area where the chicken hop up to and sleep at night).

This was a great test for the new coop which I need to build in the next few weeks, as it's going to be 4 times the size at 8' x 16' x 8' (W x L x H)

As you can see, the chicks, although they didn't like the idea of us catching them in order to move them into the new brooder, really enjoy their new hang-out.

Until Next Time... Enjoy the Pictures and Video!

It is a great condo for your chicks. Watching the video, I thought I was watching "Tool Time". Love the pic of Berkley with his glasses. I'm sure he was a great helper.
