simplicity does make it simple i tend to use what is availible at hand
same here or i go up to the dump to "forage"
rite now i am taking my old movable meat pen (it has wheels under it)
& turning it into a 4 level brooder
each level will hold up to 50 babies
each week i'll move them down to the next level till
they are ready to sexed
the pullets will be sold off
the cockerels will go to the chicken tractor unless they are really good lookers
in which case i'll set them up with a couple pullets & sell em as a trio.
now i need to start getting 4 of thesehttp://www.brinsea.com/prod-EcoGlow_50_Chick_Brooder-256.aspx
1 for each level
this is what i am going after OZ
they are the Rolls Royce of chickens if you raise them the propper french way
I have heard lots of people complain about those brooders heaters. dont buy 4 at once
good luck with them, they are great looking birds. I saw some whites and blacks a few weeks ago
Just had an idea!! We could all apply for "religious status" and get tax exempt status for our chicken cult! LMAO ROFL our bylaws would be renamed "the pullet pact". Counsel members could be "shells & yolks". Ok having way too much fun with this!
I asked before but I need to do so again... do you have psyche beds at your hospital ?
Yup. But they refused to let me in!! Lol
Oz, I have both sizes of EcoGlow brooders and I love 'em. The 50 is easier to adjust the height for growing chicks, but the 20s fit better into my Rubbermaid brooder bins. I have two 20s and one 50.
The big issue with 'em is the need to have an ambient temp of around 50 degrees, so they're not so great for cold locations like a coop in the winter.
