My brooder for new chicks is pretty small so I wasn't sure what I could put them in when they are 2 weeks old, all I was aware is that they will be moving out to the shed at 2 weeks old (it has electrics in there and a window). Then I found someone getting rid of this! It has a slide out tray, the closed in area also slides out for cleaning. The bed section is perfect for the electric hen to go in and perfect for them to roost on top of if they'd rather. Its absolutely perfect for the job!
