Description

The EcoGlow Safety 600 Chick Brooder is the efficient and safe way to keeping newly hatched poultry, game and waterfowl warm. Suitable for up to 20 chicks. Sealed to the stringent IPX7 electrical safety standard and operates at 12v for electrical safety, mains adaptor included.

The EcoGlow Safety 600 is ideal for keeping newly hatched poultry, game and waterfowl warm for the crucial first days and weeks. The low voltage heater panel warms the chicks directly by contact and radiant heat and is far more economical than a conventional infrared lamp, using about 5% of the electricity of a 250 watt suspended lamp, which is important when heating for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Contact with the EcoGlow Safety 600 is a more natural way of raising chicks than a heat lamp. It avoids the stress of being under light both day and night, the chicks get used to the natural light changes of night and day which improves weight gain and feather growth.

  • The metal heater plate of the EcoGlow Safety 600 improves heat radiation and evenness of temperature under the brooder as metal is a much better conductor of heat compared to plastic alternatives. The lower contact temperature and the easy height adjustment means that chicks can be 'contact brooded' (like the mother hen) for maximum comfort and lowest wasted energy.
  • The new flared 'skirt' around the heater retains more heat, improving efficiency and reducing energy use.
  • The EcoGlow Safety 600 has easy height adjustment for a wide range of chick sizes and its tough plastic and metal construction makes it durable and easy to clean.
  • Water-tight (IPX7 Safety Standard) construction and low voltage operation are designed to comply with stringent electrical safety standards.
  • Supplied with a mains adaptor incorporating a 3 metre lead.
  • FREE 3 year guarantee when registered online.

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.

Must have when hatching, maintains a constant heat and very easy to adjust

Improved brooder

Posted by Amanda Barker on 17/02/2021

After using an original model on numerous occasions, I am so much happier with this new version. The issues I felt made it awkward in use (old version), have been corrected in this new version. I love the way the height can be adjusted as your chicks grow with its adjustable legs. Also, I did eventually have an issue with the heating plate dropping out from the casing when it got warm, the new version has got screws to fix into the casing. This product is much safer now for use. Excellent

5 Star!

Good electric hen

Ready to go when my chicks are ready to leave the incubator. A very useful long power cord makes this product even better.

Superb small brooder

My first time using a brooder and this is simple to set up and my day old chicks absolutely love it! Completely silent so you wouldn’t even know it’s on, but it does have an indicator light so you know it is! The chicks look so cosy under there.

The screw in legs make it very easy to adjust the height, is extremely cost effective and compacts flat when not being used, for easy storage. Would highly recommend the cover as well, due to it making it set up so much easier to clean.
