This model (15") is best suited for larger poultry, such as chicken, goose, turkey, duck.
Yes, they are! However, they are meant for juvenile birds and do not come with a heat source. These cages can be beneficial to help keep your younger and more mature birds separate as well as free up space in your brooder for incoming chicks!
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.
Of all the layers this one
Feels most natural.
It’s very useful for all stages and I might even see if a can get some hens to brood their own chicks in there. I’m using mine for quail.
Thank you for the review, Holly - The Hatching Time Team
After ordering and having a chance to use the brooder pen, I was so pleased that I decided to go ahead and order the grow out pen. I love the convenience of the flexible water nipple height, and the juvenile birds (chickens, ducks, guineas) like being able to see out. Brooding chicks has always been a challenge with keeping babies consistently warm, and the space clean without having to move them to/from another container during the process. These pens are very easy to clean and maintain, plus they look nice and professional. The grow out pen (15") is also large enough to keep an adult bird if they need to be separated - I've got a hen who is way too popular with the boys and needs a break. Very happy with my purchases from Hatching Time!
Thank you for the review, Gina. Great customization of your system using the Grow Out Pen layer addition - The Hatching Time Team
