We are an urban homestead based on natural, holistic and sustainable principles. Our livestock includes chickens & honey bees and we cultivate fruits, vegetables and kitchen herbs.
Similar to our actual chicken coop with enclosed run, we plan to build our chick brooder ourselves. And like the model design for our chicken coop, the Wichita Cabin Coop, https://www.facebook.com/WichitaCabinCoop?fref=ts , we are basically copying a design for the brooder too; http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/amferro103s-homemade-chicken-brooder
It has the right size we feel we need for the chicks to not only start off in but also have room to grow to 5/6 weeks and then be ready to head out to the coop. (3′ x 5′) is more than enough space for 7 chicks to be in.
Here are some Sketch-Up models of our brooder we created to get an understanding of how to build it.
