In the Brooder
- Jun 3, 2020
I am a total newbie expecting my first set of 25 chicks in less than 2 weeks. I am making a brooder with a pull out drawer underneath that catches the poop for easier cleaning. My question is, and please excuse me if this is a dumb question, but what bedding do I use that will still allow the poop to fall through? Surely the chicks aren't supposed to just walk on hardware cloth so the droppings can fall through? Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
