Parts List & User Manual


What type of birds work with this unit?

This unit is best suited for smaller gamebirds, such as quail, partridge and pheasants.

Is the flooring interchangeable or adjustable?

No it is not. The Jumbo Flooring Upgrade is only available for our Adult Breeding Cages. The floor is specifically made to avoid any leg issues with chicks.

Do the Brooders come with dividable middle walls?

No they do not. We also do not sell anything separately that can be used as a divider. Our brooders are fully open on the inside and dividers are not advised as the water source is located on one end of the cage and the chicks would not have a way to remove themselves from the heat.

Guinea keets work well in here

So Guinea fowl are pretty different than chickens, and their wee ones even more so. This is a review for you guinea mamas wondering if this is adaptable.
Needed to make a few adjustments to the brooder for it to suit our initial (week 1) needs.

(1) Drinkers - Loved the automated drinkers attached to tubing, but mine simply climbed on them, spilling them (and of course it was constantly refilling - what a mess!) Could not take advantage of this set up now, but will as they get older.
The separate drinkers for Week 1 have been perfect.

(2) External Feed Tray
Initially, I left the feed tray on the outside as it came standard, but for Week 1 it was just too easy for mine to crawl under and get trapped or even potentially escape (daredevils!). A slat of cardboard (see pic) took care of that until they were larger.
Now feeder is attached and they are figuring it out - though some are still using it as a tunnel between brooder sections.
Again, the additional plastic feed troughs were excellent to supplant this temporary need.
(3) Door handles - our keets love trying to peck at the door handle (they love bugs, handle is green) - handle comes apart a bit easily but snaps together just as easily.
(4) Light bulb- guineas are night blind. We bought a lower wattage bulb, unscrew it at night and supplement with a night light so they can still see waterer, etc.
It's my first time using Hatching Time and what I love about them is that they not only think of, but include, the options needed as the little ones grow and their needs evolve.

I am actually on here buying more product to support our flock...look for another review soon ;-P

Thank you for the detailed review, Stephanie. We appreciate your feedback. One thing you can try is reversing the white feed grill covers to close off the trough opening - your suggestion works too! Best of luck with your flock - The Hatching Time Team


This is our second one and we love it!
