    So cute, I just learned about the corners being rounded. I will need to do that with my next chicks.

    So the chicks, when frightened or startled, don't all pile themselves into a corner of the brooder - escaping the Giant Hand, for example. No corners to crush anybody. If you have LOTS of chicks, the piling on top of each other can suffocate or injure a chick. Or some chicks.

We got them from our local feed store West Lebanon Feed and Supply located in West Lebanon, NH. great supply place that even offers free seminars on raising and caring for poultry:love
