The EcoGlow 20 chick brooder has three height settings, meaning it can be adjusted to keep up with your chicks growing needs. The actual heat pad is safe for human touch so rest assured that your fluffy, little babies can huddle up underneath without getting burnt. To reassure you that the heat pad is working, a glowing indicator light confirms the brooder is connected. Much like a mothers heat, they will move under or away as their needs dictate. To be most effective, it should be kept out of draughts (much like us when we go to the MCG).
Equally important is the savings to your hip pocket, as they only use an amazing 16 watts of power – substantially less than conventional reptile or ceramic heat globes. Given that brooders need to be on all day, everyday, for weeks at a time the savings on your electricity bills are huge!
SIZING AND CHICK NUMBERS
Brinsea EcoGlow 20’s are recommended for up to 20 day old chicks. In reality, we would only recommend that you pop under 10-ish standard sized chickens as you need to take into consideration the size of the chicks as they grow and their space needs. More information on sizing for the larger Brinsea EcoGlow 50 chick brooder is located here.

After hearing about so many house fires caused by inferior equipment, Brinsea brooders are the only brooders we trust both for ourselves, and for our Home and School hatching programs. Don’t settle for anything but the best… see our Cheap Equipment Warning page for more information.
