We recognize that many of our customers are small flock breeders who do not need or can not justify the purchase of a large and expensive brooder. This all inclusive brooder is large enough to handle the needs of most small flocks of chickens, quail, etc. The red base, which collects the droppings, is 24 inches in diameter x 2 inches deep. The brooder fits into the dropping pan and is easily lifted off for removing the droppings. The white brooder has a plastic coated removable wire floor. The wire floor grill is .5 inches by .5 inches. The top of the brooder is a lift-off plastic coated wire, 23 inches in diameter. You may move the brooder from place to place using the red built in handle. The heat source is an infrared bulb which is hung over the chicks, and the height is adjustable to be as close to the bird as you need. The total height of the brooder is 32.5 inches.
