    I need a brooder.

    I have a parrot barn 50' x 100' and lots of counter space and floor space for a brooder. I have small parrot brooders that hold four but they are specifically for parrots. Chickens are messy and my parrots are easy to clean up after.

    Was thinking about GQF brooder. Anyone tried one? I want something easy to clean and that doesn't create a lot of mess. What do you all think?

    I have been using a G.Q.F. incubator I purchased in 1997
    and it still hatches out egg's every year you just need to
    keep your eye on it and the nice part is the plastic window
    so everyone can look inside .......

    [​IMG] I have been using a Humidaire Mahogany box I have had for 20 years. I have two and I LOVE them. Once they are set they stay on Temp and Humidity and do not waver. I have had really good luck with it. I'd say 90% hatches. I really want information on GFQ's brooders. The ones I have are so labor intensive that I want something I can put under the sprays on my restaurant sinks and clean out, dry and put back in.. That easy. Or so I have heard. That's why I'm asking though.
