Clean, safe, tough and extremely economical chick brooder the larger EcoGlow 50 is ideal for up to 50 chicks or ducklings and suitable for any waterfowl or gamebird chicks.
The EcoGlow 50 only uses 60 Watts (a fraction of the electricity of typical suspended infrared lamps) because the chicks are in contact with its warm underneath surface.
The brooder runs at 12v for safety from a mains transformer (supplied) and with the convenience of a generous (about 10 feet) power lead.
Different sizes of chicks can be accommodated thanks to the 4 adjustable legs which allow use at a wide range of heights. One end of the panel may be set lower than the other.
An indicator light confirms the brooder is connected.
The low cost of the EcoGlow makes it possible for larger numbers of chicks to be warmed by multiples of brooders.
For brooding a smaller number of chicks see the smaller EcoGlow 20 chick brooder.
Dimensions: 22" long x 16" wide x 9" high
The EcoGlow chick brooder is subject to EU Design Registration No. 007779729-001

I purchased this item to save on electricity costs. Last year I had 3-4 250w heat lamps burning for two months - our electric bill was astronomical.
This year we are hatching our own eggs early on, and again will need not only the brooder, but possibly heat sources in weeks 5-8.
It is my first day using the EcoGlow 50 on a mail order batch of 50 chicks. They are happy and quiet.
I don't see it being good to use past the first couple of weeks as the birds get bigger and more curious, but as a first brooder, it is ideal.
