The Ecoglow 20 chick brooder is a highly efficient low cost unit ideal for keeping newly hatched poultry at the correct temperature for brooding. These radiant heaters are more efficient than conventional infrared bulbs, as well as being much safer, as they run from a 12 volt transformer. The units are durable and easy to clean, constructed from tough plastic, and completely height adjustable to accommodate the growth of your chicks. The EcoGlow 20 is suitable for up to 15 chicks, and measures 12” x 8” x 8”. Note: This brooder is recommended to be used on chicks at least 2 weeks of age.
does not heat up enough for 1-5 day old chicks
this is a nice unit . However, for mail order baby chicks it does not heat up enough to get them started. It is fine to use after 5-7 days but before that it does not heat up enough and we use a bulb and lamp drop for first 5 days.
