Description Computational modeling, simulation and validation were carried out on Trombe wall solar chick brooder used for optimal poultry production. Predictive linear differential equations based on physical, mathematical principles and relationships governing thermo-physical properties of the components of the brooder were formulated, discretized and expressed in their finite different forms using SCILAB 5.5.2. T-test statistics was carried out on predicted and measured mean data: temperature of Trombe wall glaze (TG1), temperature of pebble glaze (TG2), temperature of the pebble bed bin (Tp), temperature of the brooding room (TBr), and temperature of the Trombe wall outer surface (Tw (outer surface))then separated using Levene test for equality. The model adequately predicted the measured temperature of the brooding brooder at 5% probability level.
