Chicks and Brooders

What is a Brooder?

A brooder is a heated container that has a temperature-controlled area. It’s used to confine chicks until they are old enough to go outside.

Creating a Brooder

You can make or buy one, other than a few mandatory basics, it’s up to you to research and find what setup works best for you. It’s always important to plan ahead and have the brooder completely prepared for new chicks before they arrive.

It’s not necessary to spend a lot of money on a brooder, what you can make functional with scrap material is always the most rewarding. You can view MANY brooder types HERE
