This is great Cam and it shows how you don't have to get elaborate or spend lots of money to make a brooder. Good job :twothumbsup:

How is the light (heat lamp) positioned inside the pot - I mean, how is it fixed? And, is the floor duct tape with saw dust as a litter?

The chicks look right at home and comfy :)

Nice. Free shavings is a bonus - wood shavings cost quite a bit from our local pet store (they sell it for guinea pigs) no way would I ever buy it at the prices they sell it for... Are the hatch-lings from your hens?
