Brooder substrate

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Can I put a sand/sweet PDZ mixture in my brooder for chicks just like I would a coop for adult birds? Thanks.

Yes.

Yes....but...

 

It's a good idea to put food and water on a solid surface for the first week or so,

so they don't eat too much sand.

 

I use a large tote lid.

 

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
