    Sounds Great! My brooder is a Rabbit cage converted, it's got a 100 watt heat bulb that emits no light so they can sleep and a food and water bottle, make sure the water feeder is very shallow.

    I made it myself and purchased the cage off gumtree (australian advertising site) for $15 only! Just look for advertising in your local area or make your own.

    Hi and welcome to BYC. The Raising baby chicks forum may also be worth checking out.

    Hi everyone, I'm just wondering what everyone uses for the bedding of their brooders?
