The brooding period is the first 7 to 10 days of a chick's life. The objective during this period is to provide the optimum conditions for the development of appetite and feeding behaviour. Setting up the brooding area correctly will give chicks a good start, helping them to attain future high levels of flock performance, uniformity and welfare. With spot brooding the heat source is local so, chicks are able to select a preferred temperature.
