Description

The EcoGlow 20 Chick Brooder is ideal for keeping newly hatched poultry, game and waterfowl warm. The low voltage heater panel warms chicks directly by radiant heat and is more economical (it uses a tenth of the electricity of a typical suspended infrared lamp) and is safer to use than infra-red heat lamps A typical heat lamp runs at 250 watts compared with 20 watts consumption for the EcoGlow. When you consider that the brooder is on 24/7, this is an important saving.

Using an EcoGlow brooder is a more natural way of raising chicks than the traditional method of using a heat lamp. The chicks get into a routine of night and day, they put on weight and feather up in the dark.

The EcoGlow 20 has three height settings for different sized chicks and its tough plastic construction makes it durable and easy to clean. Water-tight (IPX7) construction and low voltage design assure compliance with stringent electrical safety standards. The EcoGlow 20 runs from a 12v power source for complete peace of mind and uses just 18 Watts of power to keep up to twenty chicks warm. Supplied with a mains power adapter with UK plug type as standard - Euro type available on request. Comes with a generous 3m+ power lead.

Protected by Biomaster antimicrobial additive: proven to reduce bacterial growth by up to 99.99% and 100% safe for eggs, chicks and humans. Protects the incubator from microbial growth by reducing the risk of cross contamination and provides a more hygienic environment for your eggs.

Free 3 year guarantee when registered online

Fantastic

Posted by Jo Charles-lee on 11/07/2018

Kept my bantam pekins warm and toasty. Easy to keep clean, safe and far nicer than a light bulb keeping them awake. 100% would recommend one.

Very nice and simple unit

Posted by magnus johnson on 11/07/2018

This simple device is fantastic and very easy to use. No more hassles with lights and timers, just plug it in and watch the chicks crowd underneath to stay warm. Easy to clean and adjust. I will be ordering the larger version soon. magnusflowers@gmail.com

chick brooder

Posted by Amanda B on 07/07/2018

I have used my brooder yet again this year, it does the job it's supposed to do which is great. However again, I have struggled to adjust the height easily. In the end I only fitted one side into the bracket and propped the other bracket against the wall of the plastic box for stability, hoping it wouldn't move during use. This worked, but unfortunately I am unable to remove the side leg, it feels as if it will break if I do manage to separate it. There has got to be a better way to do this. Otherwise I would have given this product full marks!

Keeping my bantam chicks cosy

Posted by Elizabeth Felgate on 06/07/2018

I got a great deal on an incubator and brooder combined from your stand at the Royal Bath and West Show and after great success with incubator am now keeping the chicks cosy with this brooder. Having done my research it was clear that this system was going to be cheaper and better for the chicks than a light, and I found it really easy to use and adjust for the growing chicks. It also has the advantage that I can easily and safely put it outside in a weatherproof box in an outside run so that the chicks could go outside almost from day one - which is great for them and me. Can't say enough good things about the Brinsea products I have used; they have contributed to making my first forays into raising birds a great pleasure. Thank you!

EcoGlow20 brilliant!

Posted by Anne sykes on 04/07/2018

The EcoGlow 20 is amazing, I have purchase 2 of them. Although you are able to adjust the night as the chicks grow I just simply use wooden blocks to lift the height. This is simply because I don’t trust myself not to break it. The first time I pulled it apart I was not happy thinking I was a little heavy handed. So this is what I do. My second EcoGLOW 20 is set at it’s full height so I just swap them. Hope this helps anyone who is like me worried about snapping it. But are fantastic. I have my newly hatched chicks in what can be described as a small indoor rabbit hutch. The holes in the cage is for rabbit drinkers but the wire of the EcoGlow just fits through the hole. Perfect solution for newly hatched chick.

Pays for itself in energy savings alone

Simpler to use than infra red lamps, certainly safer. No expensive bulb changes.... Best of all in the savings in electricity are such that it will repay the price in a matter of weeks

EcoGlow 20 Chick Brooder

Posted by Mr Robert Blyth on 29/06/2018

I have used these for several years now and will continue to do so. Where safety and reliability is paramount then this is for you and is a product that you can depend on. Its a low energy product that simply pays for itself against using heat lamps. Ideal if encouraging children to be involved in the hatching and raising of birds as it does not generate the intense heat of a bulb. These Chick Brooders are easy to clean and maintain which is so important when raising chicks. The design allows the chicks to sit under and also on the brooder replicating what they would do naturally with a hen caring for them. Simple to adjust to suit the height and needs of all types of fowl being raised.

Good product

Posted by Russ Schmieder on 19/02/2018

I'm happy with this product. It's nice to be able to turn the heat lamp off at night, mostly for safety but also because it seems more natural for the birds. Also, I was able to register the product and extend the guarantee. I know of no electronic product that is guaranteed this long, so hats off to Brinsea for doing this.
