Kountry Life How-To

Making a Chick Brooder from a Kiddie Pool
You can use an old (or new) kiddie swimming pool for a chick brooder. The rounded corners keep the chicks from piling up in the corners and suffocating each other.

Just line it good with newspaper, as the pool plastic can be kind of slippery.

A small pool can house about 25 chicks just fine.

When they get large enough to try and jump out, you can wrap some 24 inch high cage wire around it.
