The EcoGlow Safety 1200 Chick Brooder is the efficient and safe way to keeping newly hatched poultry warm. The low voltage heater panel warms the chicks directly by contact and radiant heat mimicking hen contact. This unit does not provide light and so provides chicks with a more natural day & night cycle than a heat lamp.
Brinsea state this unit is suitable for up to 35 chicks when hatched. Our advice is that chicks grow so always be sure to have plenty of brooder space.. Sealed to the stringent IPX7 electrical safety standard and operates at 12v for electrical safety, mains adapter included. The unit is far more economical than a conventional infrared lamp, using about 5% of the electricity of a 250 watt suspended lamp (this unit is 18 watts)
Easy adjustment of height for different sized chicks. Easy to clean but, seriously, buy a pack of clear plastic covers. They clean easily under a hot tap but as your chicks grow they will perch on top of the brooder and poop there.
Our tip is to set the brooder at an angle allowing the chicks to move gradually closer to the plate until they find the ideal temperature.
Supplied with a mains adapter incorporating a 3-metre lead.
PLEASE NOTE: This product is for indoor use only and the room temperature should not drop below 10° C (50° F). The EcoGlow should be located in an area free from draughts and chicks should be provided with plenty of bedding.
