I went out to clean my brooder this morning and I like to snap a picture right before I start (hands are clean then) so I can see how well the babies are growing from picture to picture.
I was putting the pictures on my computer when my son walked in and he started laughing!!! I said, “What’s so funny?!?” He pointed at this picture and said, ”Is that you God?”
I made the brooder out of 3 cardboard boxes that I duct taped together then lined with plastic sheeting the covered with pine shavings. The bricks are there to hold the plastic sheeting down so the babies can’t scratch it up, get under it and suffocate.
