Back in Time - Brooder House
|"Sis," Jerry, Dad, Rich, and John|
(Marilyn was probably a baby at the time)
It was no longer used for chicks when I was small: it was used for storage. I loved that little building and begged my parents to move it closer to the house and let me use it as a playhouse. Despite all my whining, it didn't happen. Rather than be deterred from my dream, I moved things around in the little building and adapted my play around the items.
The brooder house was located adjacent to the quonset hut that served as a garage. My brothers spent a lot of their time in the garage, creating, welding, and repairing. Both the quonset and the brooder house were still used when the farm was sold in 1998.
