NOTE: It's suggested to put 4 baby chickens in the small brooder, 6 in the medium and 10 in the large to maintain optimum comfort and conditions for baby chickens for the first 6 weeks after hatching. However, If you put more than the suggested amounts it can become quite crowded as the chickens get older and larger (3 to 6 weeks). When at maximum levels the brooders will need to be cleaned regularly every day since the crowding will lead to lots of messiness.
