mccomb chick broorder

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Just wondering if there is any one out there that know any thing about them? I found one out at my grandmas, its electric, 4' x 4', and has the spring looking heating coils. It does work and I was thinking about using it. I was wondering if it would be cheaper to run than the red brooder bulbs. Just so who ever reads this im hoping for around 100 chicks not just a small group. The 250 watt bulbs on all the time is kinda expensive, this has a thermostat and only sits about 12 inches off the ground. Thanks stew

Hard to find info on them. Here's what I found in Google Books:

I don't know what span of years they were made but seeing these ads, I would thoroughly check the electrical before using it.

 Best,
