• I built this as a brooder for Cornish X-rock mutant roosters. Now it houses Bantam flock #2.

    Hey, you work with what you have. As long as it gets the job done, the birds won't know the difference. We use a rubber watering trough, 110 gallons, as our brooder. The standard warming light clamps onto one end and chicks have plenty of room to find their comfort zone. They stay in the house for a month and then I put them in a separate area of the run with a plywood roof to finish them out.

    I used a huge rubber-made tube and a mechanics spot light. Prolly not the best way to go. Do you have any pics of the inside of you brooder?
