If you're using a brooder house
, provide roosts, with four inches of space per bird and poles about six inches apart.
Tour stops will include hatcheries, brooder houses
, and rearing, "grow-out" and over-wintering pens.
Hatcheries, brooder houses
, barns, workshops, farm equipment and waterlines in the fields were relatively untouched.
The system that brought such results to these poultry raisers consists of hatching the chicks early, growing them out in portable brooder houses
on fresh range and feeding a good starting ration followed with a growing ration.
The agency also used some of the Project 500 monies to pay for construction of environmentally controlled pheasant brooder houses
In mortality statistics kept of more than 300,000 chicks -- enough, certainly, to strike an average -- it was found that the normal death rate was doubled when the brooder houses
and other shelters were not kept clean.
For our money we got an old run-down barn, two nice garages, several small brooder houses
, a hog house in fair shape, and a good poultry house as well as a small house, orchard, and a large grove of trees.
