Description

AVAILABLE NOW!

The NEW 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.

This product is for indoor use only and the room temperature should not drop below 10° C (50 F).

Really Good!

Great value for money

Perfect size for the amount chicks I hatch and the chicks love going underneath to keep warm. Height adjustments makes it useful for chicks all sizes and ages!

Love the new brooder, great alternative to heatlamps!

Great product

Excellent brooder with it's easy to adjust legs when it's in situ, twist the legs to adjust the height while the chicks are sat underneath. So much easier than the original Ecoglow. Heatplate is clear of any screw heads so the chicks cant burn their heads.The plastic cover is a great idea to stop the brooder getting mucky & sits perfectly on the brooder. Would highly recommend this brooder to any other similar types on the market.

Simplicity Itself!

A great addition to the Brinsea brooder range and a must for anyone hatching poultry/gamebird eggs. The great advantage is the ability to adjust the legs to the ideal height for your chicks (large or small), even for chicks of different sizes by setting the legs at one end to a different height. Cleaning is just as straightforward, once it's been unplugged, due to the nature of the plastics used. Longevity may be an issue due to plastic fatigue but I'm sure Brinsea have considered that aspect and used the best materials available, every other detail is as good as you could hope for.

Good product

Much better than a heat lamp. No worry about overheating or high energy costs. Would be nice if the brooder diamantled a little easier. Bit of a faff getting legs off.
