Clever DIY brooder for chicks, great for the small scale chicken keeper. Just remember they’ll outgrow this space fast, so you’ll need to prepare before the coop housing for your juveniles.
It would also be nice to have this brooder on hand for isolating chick/s that have an unexpected health issue.
My Two Cents | TBN Ranch
Liked the idea of the drinker on pellets, however, didn’t like seeing a white light in the brooder lamp. In my opinion, always use a red bulb, chicks are easily agitated by bright lights and this can lead to behavior problems. The radiant heat shown in video is a superior alternative!
