When you think of a brooder, typically, a box with metal screening, a window, and a bright heat lamp comes to mind. That is not the case with the Incubator Warehouse Insta Brooder™ with Vrooder™ Heater Plate. This brooder is lightweight, made of cloth, and has a low-wattage horizontal heat pad that baby chicks can snuggle under without getting burned.

The Ups and Downs of this Brooder-Heater Combo
The features of this brooder pretty much sum up the upside of this combo. Unfortunately, one of those same features can also be a bit of a problem as well. Since the pen is so light, it can also be somewhat fragile. If your rottweiler is given to destruction, this pen won’t take it. The metal rods used in some frameworks must be handled carefully to keep them from bending.
The brooder is rugged enough to handle all the chicks can dish out on their way to the pullet-hood. It has the same durability that one would expect from a medium-grade camping tent.
The Price is Right
This all-in-one combo is a good value as brooders go because you won’t have to shop for separate items and pay two shipping costs. If you like it, you can buy it here. I am happy to help with research on various products. This is what I have found. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.
For ease and convenience of setup, the ability to keep chicks in one place while they get ready for the coop, and a reasonable price tag, I give this one at least a seven out of ten. Amazon shoppers gave it four and a half stars, so they thought more highly of it than I do.
