Box Brooders

Box brooders are commercial versions of home brooders. The primary benefit of a box brooder is that it can be re-used many times whereas a home brooder needs to be constructed from scratch with each new arrival of chicks. When stacked, box brooders are called battery brooders and have capacity to brood many chicks at the same time.

Box brooders have the following features:

  • Re-usable for many years
  • Built-in heat source and thermometer
  • Built-in chick feeders
  • Built-in chick waterers
  • Built-in viewing windows
  • Good ventilation with draft protection
  • Stackable for large capacity needs
