what I will be brooding with this April is Radiant heat. it's in the form of The EcoGlow 20 chick brooder by Brinsea. It costs a WHOLE LOT LESS to run than a heat lamp! Radiant heat is basically infra red waves that are invisible. Much like how the Sun warms us.it can't cause fire and can't burn you or the chicks. It's adjustable to be adjusted as the chicks grow. it's made of a special plastic that's bacteria resistant.the chicks get under it to keep warm and basically regulate their own temperature exactly as they would with a hen. getting under when cold getting out when warmer. Radiant heat is different than just regular heat. I've wanted one for a few years now. Brinsea makes very nice products but the cost has kept me at bay until I saw at wayfair online they have them about 10% off for the 20 chick. They make 20 and 50 chick models. The cost was now 85 dollars. which is still a lot to me but the product is very much worth it for a peace of mind. knowing it can't cause a fire, it's less money to run, it's always the perfect temperature, so much less worry. it has a two year warranty as well.shipping was fast and I tested it and it worked beautifully. I looked at the reviews and most are 5 star. it's a very good way to brood and you can usually trust Brinsea products. you should check it out online and see what you think. or watch it in use on you tube.so this is how I will brood from now on. Hope this helps.
