Brood Temperature


As previously mentioned brooder temperatures are critical particularly in the early stages of a chick’s life. From 1- 14 days old, temperatures must be between 37oC and 35oC If chicks have been raised by the parent’s for the first 2-3 weeks, then initial brooder temperatures once removed from the nest will be approximately 31oC. As can be seen from the variation of the temperatures, chicks fed by their parents in an outdoor environment become acclimatised to lower temperatures much more quickly than do incubator hatched chicks. At PARROTCARE we still believe that it is necessary to have a professionally manufactured brooder to ensure chick survival even from the age of 2-3 weeks. Home made devices are not advisable where the life of a parrot chick is at stake. Some of the items you will require for the hand rearing room are listed below:- Medical supplies
