Brooder House





Much like the hen house the brooder house provides protection, ventilation and warmth for our chicks. The interior has a coal stove with "wings" for the first couple months after the chick’s arrival. Then as Mother Nature provides natural heat and our chicks grow, the stove is changed out for nesting boxes. Outside is a fenced yard for our youngsters to explore and a wooden umbrella to provide shade.
