New Vlog: Starting Chicks in a Brooder


Blogger Lilac Hill said...

Nice vlog, full of info for the beginner and reminders for the experienced. I did pay for a Premier light this year and used it in the big barn. I was pleased and had peace of mind, especially at night. I still used the clamp on lights in the outbuildings and will probably buy another Premier light next year.

The absolute best way to water chicks hands down, is to use a rabbit bottle waterer and then transition them to a nipple bucket waterer when they are a month old. They can't drown or poop in the water and you won't have to scrub the waterer everyday. Great little vlog! Keep'em coming!!

I use a DIY brooder plate for heat instead of a light after the first day to observe behavior/health. Much quieter and good day/night cycling.

Ditto on the nipple waterers, the horizontal nipples, installed in the sides of vessels, are the best IMO. Have them in a big jug with heater for winter and a bunch of smaller bottles for brooder and cages.

Ya oughta campaign for a gopro camera so the beginners can have some visuals of this equipment. What program do you use to edit your video? Great vlog!
