Here is my Brower Brooder. It is in my livingroom where i brood ALL my chicks. I used to used boxes and cages but eventually had to go to better equipment! It was worth the investment as right now my Bobwhite quail chicks are in there all nice and cozy! :D
(as of 3/23 they now have some Porceline mille fluers and some Production red roosters in it! I have also made a different top to it and will need to update!)
Here is the brooder with home made top so i can see the little ones.This unit came with a heating element that i did not like much. I like the light hooded light bulbs best. They draw less power and are consisteant in heat! It has been successful method of supplemental heat for me! So i needed to remove the flat sheet metal lids with something more sutable. As you see from both views.
Also at times i've had to make a divider, so that i could put two seperate species in there. I turned this one large brooder into two smaller ones. I used good old fashioned priority mail boxes as the dividers. Works Great!!
