    hey guys
    So I'm expecting my chickens to hatch some time tomorrow [​IMG][​IMG] and I have the brinsea ecoglow 20 I was just wondering when should I turn it on? I have read all the manuals that came with it and none of them stated how long before you put the chickens in the brooder do you turn it on

    any answers much appreciated [​IMG]

    I have the Eco glow 20 and I usually set brooder box up and turn it on day 18/19. I feel this gives the bedding underneath the eco glow chance to warm through so it's nice and snug for chicks when they go in. Good lick with your hatch :fl
