The “Original” cubicle revolutionized waterfowl rearing in Europe when first introduced and continues to be preferred by experienced hobbyists and professionals. Now made in America, the original rearing cubicle stands to make waves on this side of the pond too.
Made from fiberglass with a durable white gelcoat interior paint, the original rearing cubicle keeps chicks clean while providing them with the benefits of wet brooding. Chicks stay clean and dry on the plastic floor grate that does not harbor bacteria, rust or decay. A constant water flow keeps the water cool and fresh, encouraging quality feather development. The cubicle can also be used for dry brooding (with the purchase of an additional floor grate).
The Original Rearing Cubicle comes with:
1 standard duty floor grate
2 safety drains and fittings (easy connection to 1-1/2" drain pipe)
2 drain plugs

Extra cubicle floors
Made from heavy duty plastic, these floor grates will stand up to years of use. Excess water, feed and droppings fall through the grate, helping to keep birds clean and dry. They can be soaked in disinfectant and washed between uses. Rough sanded for improved traction.
Our replacement floors fit both American and European manufactured cubicles. Unlike coated wire floors which rust and stain over time, our plastic floors will not damage the inside of the cubicle. Holes in brooders are 1/2" and will work well with all waterfowl species.

We can also make a significantly smaller hole design for use with shorebirds. Please inquire.
Soft Floor Mats
Ideal for sensitive and/or small-footed species (cranes, plovers, quail, etc.) these 1/4" thick durable mats provide a soft, high traction flooring while still providing the cleanliness qualities of the plastic floor grate that supports it. Excess water flows through the mat, while droppings and spilled feed can quickly be rinsed away.
Mats can be soaked in disinfectant and rinsed dry. Some users even run them through a clothing washer/dryer cycle
