    The EcoGlow brooder is a clean, safe, tough and extremely economical chick brooder with a a highly efficient low cost heating system. Designed for newly hatched (poultry) chicks to keep them snug and warm and your electricity bills low.

    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.

    "Great Heating Option"
    Pros - safer than a heat lamp, chicks stay quieter and happier, more natural, low electricity cost
    Cons - too small for 20 chicks
    This is a great way to heat your chicks. It is more natural and I would always pick this over the heat lamp. However, I want to go with a heating pad like MHP next time because it just looks cozier and even more natural, plus it's less expensive and DIY!
    The only misleading thing is that it says it is for 20 chicks but that's likely only for very young chicks. As they grow, it fits less. We have only five chicks but opted for the 20 instead of the 10. It's a good thing we did because the 10 would have been too small once the chicks got a bit older.

    "Best thing I've ever bought"
    Pros - doesn't heat up you whole room, allows you to keep older chickens in with chicks without the older ones over heating.
    Cons - none!!
    absoulutly amazing!! I will never use a heat lamp again!

    "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.

    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.
