In the Brooder
- May 7, 2016
So I've been doing some late night thinking tonight about brooders... I have heard lots of good things about an ostrich feather duster to simulate a mama hen. But I thought..maybe you could put a shallow pan/dish underneath with some straw arranged in a nest shape to really seem like a nest? What do y'all think? Also, I read an article where the guy put the nonstick shelf liner stuff down as bedding in the brooder. I would assume that this would be super easy to clean. I always had a problem with my last chicks with getting feed all in the shavings then not eating it. So maybe the shelf liner floor with a "nest" to sleep in? Thoughts???
