Want Small gas brooder for baby chicks

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

I would like to raise chickens(cornish rock) on my property that is "off the grid". I have no intentions of modernizing it. I have an apartment in town, but I plan to be at this place over most of the summer.

I know that years ago they heated baby chicks with gas brooders, but the ones I know of that are available today are way larger than I need! Does anyone know of a place that might carry one suited to the small grower of say 50 - 100? Would a "Mr. Heater" work as a good heat source? Any suggestions???

BTW, I use the libraries internet most of the time, so I don't always get to access my email frequently.

Thanks! Katie
