Welcome to 'Blackwood Farm' Home to 2 kids, 1 Dog, 3 Cats, 4 Goats and too many chickens The property (10 acres) was mostly clay with no trees, an unfinished house and shed that looked like it was falling down rather than half way built. That was 8 years ago and it has improved a lot. It took a great deal of hard work and is slowly looking like home. Here are some of my other animals And lets not forget my chickens...........
This is the Outdoor brooder that sits on the deck, I still need to add some more windows when i find some perspex. It is 1500 x 900 x 900 and at the moment has 8 3 week old black australorp x new hampshire chicks. I have now added a window and sand box.
This is my 1st Brooder. It is for chicks aged 0 to 2.5 weeks, it lives in the dining room on the table.I made it out of scrap that I found around the place then just bought the heatlamp and fittings. It is around 700cm x 700cm x 350cm tall. At 2.5 weeks of age they then go out to the big brooder on the deck (under construction). Its huge, 1500cm x 900cm x 900cm tall.
