Poultry Brooder Kits: Complete kits with feed dish, waterer and much more.
Ideal for keeping young chickens, ducks and other poultry warm until they can generate their own body heat. The warm environment of a brooder can also be used to help sick birds and animals recover from illness or to assist in hand-raising baby birds. Seek expert advice before doing so.
Small Kit: 48cm L x 30cm W x 32.5cm H. (Suits up to 4 baby chickens Ideally, but can fit up to up 8 with caveats. See below)
Medium Kit: 58.2cm L x 39.6cm W x 42.1cm H. (Suits up to 6 baby chickens Ideally, but can fit up to up 12 with caveats. See below)
Large Kit: 78.2cm L x 39.5cm W x 42cm H. (Suits up to 10 baby chickens Ideally, but can fit up to 20 with caveats, See below)
NOTE: It’s suggested to put 4 baby chickens in the small brooder, 6 in the medium and 10 in the large to maintain optimum comfort and conditions for baby chickens for the first 6 weeks after hatching. However, If you put more than the suggested amounts it can become quite crowded as the chickens get older and larger (3 to 6 weeks). When at maximum levels the brooders will need to be cleaned regularly every day since the crowding will lead to lots of messiness.
Each Kit Includes:
1 x White enclosure with clear front and lid.
1 x Light heat lamp (with dimmer)
1 x Ceramic heat lamp 50W (not included in the small kit)
1 x Power cord (medium & large sizes have two)
