EcoGlow Safety Brooders

Our EcoGlow Safety brooders are low cost, efficient, safe and reliable brooders suitable for keeping poultry, game or waterfowl chicks warm. These radiant heaters are far more efficient than conventional infra red lamps, as well as being safer since they run from a 12 volts mains transformer (supplied). The leg height can be easily adjusted to match chicks of different sizes from quail to goose.

TLC Brooders / Incubators / Intensive Care Units

Our TLC brooders have several applications

  • Bird Brooding – Altricial species of birds (including all parrots and birds of prey) are blind and helpless when they hatch and it is some weeks before they are able to move around, control their body temperature and feed themselves. During this period the young birds need to be kept in a clean, temperature controlled environment. As they grow and develop down and feathers they can gradually tolerate lower temperatures and the breeder needs to be able to reduce the chamber temperature easily, whilst still maintaining control. Young birds also benefit from being able to see humans from within the chamber; during this early stage in their development it is essential for young birds to become familiar with the presence of people if they are to be tame in adulthood.
  • Recovery Incubator – The TLC fulfils all of the above functions very cost effectively and can also double as a hospital cage for sick or injured birds, used by rescue centres worldwide.
  • Intensive Care Unit – Brinsea TLC Recovery Incubators provide such an environment and are used around the world by rescue centres, breeding centres and individuals. TLC incubators are the best place for weak and fragile baby animals to heal, hide, cuddle, and grow – especially for tiny babies who aren’t yet old enough to retain their own heat. The incubators provide a warm, clean, quiet, safe and reliable haven for these orphaned baby animals. Many young babies need extra help to survive in those early days and a safe, secure, controlled environment gives them the best chance to recover and thrive.
