EcoGlow Brinsea Brooder

Brinsea 2

Updated Review | The Pro’s and Con’s of Using the Brinsea EcoGlow for Chicks in Winter

If you raise chicks, then you already know keeping the brooder at a comfortable temp is near impossible. The weather changes from hour to hour, so unless you don’t mind being on call 24/7 to raise and lower the heat lamp, the Brinsea is a MUCH better way. No more worrying about baking your chicks alive under a  heat lamp, or wondering if they’re too cold. That’s worth about $80 bucks to me, how about you?

About the Brinsea Brooder

The EcoGlow Brinsea Brooder only uses 18 Watts (a tenth 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 are accommodated by three adjustable height settings and an indicator light confirms the brooder is connected.

Various sizes & styles, price: from about $80 on Amazon Brinsea EcoGlow Brooder for Chicks or Ducklings
