What Is A Brooder
Is some type of heated enclosure for raising baby poultry. A brooder includes a heat lamp, a source of food and water for the chicks and bedding such as pine shavings.
Should I use a red heat bulb for my brooder light?
NO. Red heat bulbs are an EXTREME fire hazard, put out entirely too much heat, and can cause behavioral problems with your baby chicks. A regular 60w – 100w bulb is perfectly suitable to use and much safer for you and for your baby chicks.
What treats can I give my chicks?
You can offer your chick’s fun treats like mealworms (LIVE or dried). However, keep in mind, your little fluff balls need as much nutrition as possible to mature properly. So, offer treats in small amounts and in moderation so their main source of food is their feed.
