Chick Brooder Box

Regular price $75.00 Sale

For the first several weeks of life poultry of all types need a place where they can stay safe, dry and warm. We get asked regularly what we use to raise (brood) our chicks in. We have spent years figuring out what works and what doesn't. There are several benefits of our brooder box over others:

  • Sturdy
  • Breathable
  • Easily assembled/disassembled
  • Easy to clean
  • Prevents corner crushing
  • Creates a self regulating temperature space
  • Waterproof
  • Easy to clean under
  • No toxic hot plastic fumes
  • Saves space when you don't need it anymore
  • Helps the environment by recycling
  • Can be used for several years

For those that don't intend on raising new chicks regularly, renting a brooder box is the perfect answer.  We also offer entire chick care packages

Approximate heat requirement time lines:

  • Standard chicks       4 weeks
  • Bantam chicks         8 week
  • Ducks                      6 weeks
  • Meat chicks             4 weeks
  • Turkeys                    8 weeks
  • Quail                        4 weeks

Rentals can be paid for on a weekly basis after the initial rental if needed. Brooders must be picked up and dropped off in a timely manner.
