    An indicator light confirms the brooder is connected.

    The EcoGlow brooder top can also be used to keep your breeder or pet birds warm. For this purpose, you would place it on the side of the cage where the perches are attached so that they can nestle close to it whilst on the perch.

    "The most "realistic" option"
    Pros - everything
    Cons - none
    This was the BEST purchase I ever made to raise chicks. It simulates the heat of the mother without the light. Chicks have been familiar with night and day from hatching and have been tucking themselves in since. They loved it and so did we.

    "Sleep well tonight"
    Pros - Never have to worry about a spot light, changing temperature or if they have enough heat.
    Cons - Hard to get apart, use a screw driver! most expensive option
    bought it on clearance for 74$ was kinda pricy, but with the piece of mind and comfort it allows the chicks a place to hide if needed or their first perch when they start testing out their wings. Got up several times to check on them the first few nights, they were all toasty warm and sound asleep, so that allowed me to sleep well so I had more time to spend singing and playing with them during the day. I will use this for years to come!

    "We call this our square hen"
    Pros - Chicks love it. Adjustable to the height of chicks as they grow. You can even put one side lower then the other so the chicks can be closer to the heat if they want.
    Cons - None- way better then heat lamps.
    418641D7-8F38-4652-9BE0-4BDF9A4ADF09.jpeg I have a plastic chick brooder and using a heat lamp was always worrisome. Love this chick heater. The cord is very thin so I can still put the lid on the chick brooder. I also like how the cord disconnects in the middle in case you want to take the heater out but not have to unplug from the wall. I’ve never had a chick that was too cold or too hot using this. I trust it and I am thinking about trying one with my green Cheek Conures I raise.

    Lol now that I am done with keeping the chicks inside their brinsea is filthy. I don't think I will be able to remove the poop stains on it. I would recommend putting a rag on top of your brinsea if you use one!!

    What a nice gift!!! My guys are only 10 days old so not an issue yet. I normally have them sold before they get to 3 weeks! I have switched from red lamps to black ceramic bulbs too. Those red lamps make me nervous!!!

    Turning on its side might be an idea. Looking at my chicks, I think my 3+ week old large fowl would have outgrown it already.. It was given to me as a gift. The larger would have worked better but didn't realize that at the time. Once the chicks outgrow it I just switch to the heat lamp, but probably won't have to do that with the bantams.

    I have been using mine for over a year now and LOVE it. I put a paper towel on the top so it's easier to clean. Once they get tall, I turn it on it's side....they can still huddle up against the warm top. I will never use red heat lamps again! I currently have 11 Bielefelder chicks and 3 silkies using it.

    I don't keep my chicks in a brooder long enough to justify buying one. I use a big tote and I do use a heat lamp and make adjustments. I must have chicks that get bored easily because mine don't seem happy when they are cooped up. No pun intended. I just put my 3 week old chicks outside and made them a chick tractor and they seem happy. I didn't realize how much work baby chicks are. It is also worth every bit of it.

    Haha, yes, they perch and fly off of it a lot! I ended up putting a mat on top to help control the poop! My bedding is pine pellets. Love these because they are very low dust and they last forever!
