Chicken Brooder

Chicken Brooder

I really like the dividers in this brooder. Good for starting chicks and opening new sections as they grow. Plus later it can be used for the broody hen(s) box.

Some of you have mentioned needing to keep raising your heat lamp so it isn't too hot.   You can save electricity by just reducing the bulb size.  I had worked down to a 40 watt bulb by the time mine were ready to leave the brooder - and this was last winter, in the garage.   I keep a 250 watt heat bulb, a 100 watt, a 75 watt, a 60 watt, and a 40 watt bulb on hand, and adjust the heat in this way.
