The EcoGlow 20 Chick Brooder is ideal for up to 20 chicks or ducklings and suitable for any waterfowl or game-bird chicks. It is also ideal for classroom hatches. This unit only uses 18 Watts (a tenth of the electricity of typical suspended infrared lamps) because the chicks are in contact with its warm under-surface. The brooder runs at 12v for safety from a mains transformer (supplied) and features a generous 10 feet power lead. Other features include height settings and an indicator light.
