@chattery41Cathy, I am glad you discovered you had a bad appendicts before it ruptured! Hope for a speedy recovery. Careful toting water to our flock!
My Ecoglow brooder plate failed last night. It was about 60 degrees in the room and the chicks were one day old. I lost 3 of them. I was able to revive the rest with warm water and a premier one plate that wasn't in use. This is another first for me. That thing should still be under warranty so I am going to be calling about that.
I figure I have time for one more set of eggs before the Easter Hatch along and my shipped eggs come. This will be my 3rd test hatch since deciding to do the hatch along...I would have not known the brooder plate was bad except for the test hatch...Yeah, that's the story I will tell...All of these "test" chickens are necessary to check out the equipment...
Got to go get distilled water.
I can't keep up either. So sorry about your lost chicks. I bet it is the transformer that blew on the EcoGlow. They are not good in low temps. If Brinsea won't replace it, I can tell you where to get a new one for much less than Brinsea wants, thanks to @ronott1!
@Chaos18 Congratulations on winning the sign!

I think these plates need to come with an alarm so we know when it quits ! If we're gonna pay for the things anyway i would pay a couple extra $'s for some kind of alarm. Good luck with the warranty, ask them about replacing ur chicks too.
@chattery41 I hope you are feeling better soon. Great idea for the alarm!
I made my own waterer for above the EcoGlow. I have been using it for over a year and would never go back to an open water source. It keeps the brooder so much drier and cleaner. The chicks take to it right away.
