When you're brooding chicks do you prefer the heating plate or a lamp with an infrared bulb? Can you tell me why? We used the lamp with the infrared bulb for the last, but the next round I'm going have about 26 chicks instead of 8.
It will definitely handle that many. I would trust it with as many as 40 chicks until they feather out.Thank you! The one I was looking at is Premier. I like them because they have the cover and you can get an external temperature control so you can raise it and lower the temperature as they get bigger. Do you think the 50 chick brooder would handle 26 chicks? Plus whatever extras I'm sure they'll send.
