There are two types of brooding: natural and artificial.

Natural brooding requires the hen to warm the chicks. Artificial brooding allows for heaters to provide warmth to the chicks. There are two types of artificial brooding: Warm room (entire room heated) and cold room (area just under heaters heated) brooding.
