Let Your Hatchlings Grow Strong With Our Brooder Plate for Chicks
When baby birds are born, they cannot produce enough of their own body heat to withstand the cold, which is why our brooder plate for chicks is the ideal piece of equipment for any bird breeder. Give your chicks a fair chance at growing up with a box designed to keep them warm. Choose Uneek Poultry when you need products that give your hatchlings the growing environment they require.
The Importance of Using a Chicken Brooder Box for Chicks
A brooder might seem a strange item to purchase if you’re not sure why it’s necessary. To help you understand why it’s important, we have put together a few points for you to consider:
- Baby chicks are curious and want to explore. A brooder helps you keep them all in one place, safe from unexpected things they might stumble upon. They are also small, so it’s often easy to overlook them if they’re running around everywhere.
- Baby chicks need a heat source since they can’t yet provide their own. The younger the chicks, the less capable they are of producing enough body heat to keep themselves warm. The heaters in brooders help them stay cosy on colder days and nights.
- Baby chicks need ready access to their food and water. As with any growing animal, they will need sporadic access to food and water. The brooder not only keeps them all in one place but puts their food and drink close to them.
Commonly Asked Questions From Customers Who Need a Chicken Brooder Box
To help provide some up-front clarity, we’ve put together a few frequently asked questions we have received . Here are some answers that will hopefully cover any remaining questions you have for us:
- Can I only put baby chickens in a brooder? Simple answer: no. While breeders commonly use brooders for chickens, they are ideal for any baby bird that requires shelter, heat, food, and drink. Examples include goslings or even turkey poults.
- Until what age should I keep the chicks in the brooder? Our brooders are ideal for chicks up to four or five weeks old. You will notice when your chicks start getting a little too big for the brooder.
- How do I know if my brooder heater is warm enough? If you see your chicks crowding the outer edges of your brooder away from the heat source, it is too hot. If they are chirping constantly and seem like they are fighting for warmth, it is too cold.
