    I'm wondering if anyone out there has experience with propane brooders for small scale meat bird production (50-200 chicks at a time). I'd like to know what kind of fuel consumption I can expect and if there are some more efficient than others. Electricity is not really an option in my situation. Any info would be apprectiated as I will probably be building a dedicated brooder house here in the near future.

    The gasolecamerica looks to be the ticket. Have you ever used one of these for chick brooding? Do they have a thermostat? I'll be giving them a call later today, thanks.
