DUAL PURPOSE BROODER:
(under the class definition) Devices capable of(1) performing the functions of a brooder and incubator simultaneously, the combination involving a separate chamber for each function, both warmed from the same source of heat,(2) converting from an incubator to a brooder or visa versa, or (3) performing another function not related to animal husbandry, such as seedling propagation, concurrent with its brooding or incubating function.
(1) Note. The brooder is distinguishable from the incubator in that the brooder provides a hover or canopy for the chicks protection, while the incubator is merely designed to receive the newly hatched chicks pending their removal to the brooder.
