Abstract

Chicken brooder is the place for the young chicks live for early periods of growth, when their normal body temperature cannot be maintained by its own body. Unique from most other animals, chicks are unable to live for any long time of periods because it dependent on others heat source to maintain optimal body temperature. There are several type of heating system used in chicken brooder or poultry houses which are force air furnace, natural brooder, radiant brooder, radiant tube heaters, high intensity radiant heaters and “alternative” heating systems. Moreover, the design of the brooder before cannot provide best thermal comfort for the baby chicks. The purpose of this study is to design portable hexagon chicken brooder that can provide best thermal comfort for the chicks. To achieve the objective and solving the problem before, different type of materials use. Other than that, the brightness of the lamp also can be control so that, the temperature of the chicken brooder can be controlled. Besides that, the behaviour of the chicks captured using digital camera so that, we can know whether baby chicks feel comfort or not. Lastly, it is expected that this design of the portable chicken brooder can provide best thermal comfort for the chicks.
