This brooder tank is most suitable for the amateur breeder. The circular design avoids any interior corners - the cause of many chick deaths. The brooder is easily moved about using the high handle. The tank is 60cm in diameter x 30cm high. The mesh floor is raised about 5cm from the large bottom pan so that droppings fall clear and are easily disposed of. Ample space is available for food and water containers (not supplied). The upper mesh cover is easily removed for access. This brooder should be ideal for the hobbyist raising 30-or-so chickens, or for the breeder of other small animals, birds or reptiles. The brooder is supplied without heater lamp, but these can be purchased at an electrical supplier. Intensity of the heat lamp can be controlled by adjusting the chain length. The whole unit has excellent ventilation for a healthy environment.

The lamp can be raised as the chicks grow. A lamp hook is incorporated. The stand can be secured to the pen wall. Tank dimensions are 90cm diameter x 40cm high. Supplied by Little Giant, USA.
