Thinking of purchasing this but I only get 3 -4 chicks at a time? Will this work for me? I am getting two batches of 4 this spring. I hate running a heat lamp as I keep my brooder in my garage.
Reviews I have read said it's hard to adjust the height? Any problems with that? I will be getting day old chicks so would need lowest setting at first? But will need to raise it? Some suggest using the middle setting and then blocking up as needed? Thoughts on that?
And how long do you use it for? Or do you just leave it in there until feathered?
I used the ecoglow 20 for 6 chickens last spring and then 3 ducks in the summer. I love it. It wasn't hard to adjust height, once you figure it out. I would raise it as it looked too low. I left it in therw until they got feathers and weren't using it anymore. If you put contact paper on top, it makes for easy clean up because they pooped non stop on top.
