A passive solar brooder house


Paper, American Society of Agricultural Engineers (82-4045): 14 pp
A passive solar brooder house
The brooder building has a combination water-wall and a direct-gain passive heated water bed designed to sustain an indoor temperature of about 32 plus or minus 3 deg C, as required by 1 wk old chicks. Preliminary evaluation indicates that this system can maintain the required temperature using approx. 10% less auxiliary heat when compared with the heating requirements of a non-passive brooder house.
