Just Add Chicks!
This set includes everything you need to start your own poultry business! It will hold 48 chicks in the brooder, day-old, either from your incubator or from a breeder. This brooder gives them access to everything they need for a healthy start in life- food, water, shelter, and warmth. With trough feeders and waterers, you are able to maintain a cleaner environment by reducing waste contamination in the food and water, as chicks are very prone to messy behaviors. The exterior troughs also make checking food and water levels a breeze, and refilling them is just as easy.
After 4 weeks in the brooder, it is time to move your chicks to the grow-off pens so they can finish developing to a size that is suitable for moving in with the flock. This means that their feathers are fully developed, and they are able to defend themselves from other birds, as well as potential predators. This typically takes about another 4 weeks, making the cycle very easy to manage. When moving your chicks into the 2 grow off pens, you can house 24 chicks in each pen. This also then opens your brooder back up, allowing you to start a new growth cycle. This means that you can have up to 96 birds at any time, kept comfortably in less than 11 square feet. This is a great opportunity to start a business for yourself, working with the birds you love.
