Initially I was worried the heater would not be warm enough. I’ve used heater lamps previously. Not only was it warm enough, but my chicks have shown less stress and “mud butt” than using a lamp. The best part is they sleep through the night and they seem to be weaning themselves from the heat source much faster.
No heat at all, buyer be ware
Well, this waa supposed to be a good one. It is terrible. Luckily tested it out before my chicks are born. I have left it on for two hours and not hardly a lick of heat. Will stick to the heat lamp.
Our chicks have been super health and happy with these. We bought 2 and they learned to use them quickly and have been thriving and seem to enjoy having a space to hide in while also getting used to ambient temps. I don't think they really fit 20 chicks, maybe in the first few days.
My newly hatch chicks are thriving under the heater. It seems much safer then the heat lamps too.
Great indoors/outdoors above 55 degrees.
This was perfect for 7 standard sized chicks. It got a little snug as they got older, but each chick was able to stay underneath. I used this in an indoor brooder for 3 weeks, then in an outdoor brooder. Overnight temps were about 60 degrees and they were very comfortable. Easy to adjust and clean.
I am very disappointed with the ecoglow brooder plates. I love my Titan and have purchased a number of the brooder plates from TSC and have been pleased. The EcoGlow just doesn’t seem to be warm enough for chicks. For myself it is overpriced for the heat output and size. I would not buy again or recommend to anyone. I expected better when I bought brinsea
Chicks love it
I just got 11 chicks and I'm using the Brinsea EcoGlow for the first time. There's plenty of room for the chicks and they are loving it. They were quite noisy when I picked them up from the post office and on the way home. After putting them in the brooder, they discovered the heat plate almost instantly and went under it and quieted down. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
Chicks love it and it's safe
This is my first time raising three chicks (buff orpington) and I am keeping them inside. I did not trust the heat lamp after reading stories of the bulb bursting or something catching on fire. Not to mention, I couldn't stay in the same room as the chicks for more than 15 minutes because of the bright light. I researched plate brooders and went with this one. This is the best investment I have made so far. The chicks absolutely love it. They became more independent. For the first day or so they did not come out as another reviewer said. Eventually, they were forced to leave the brooder for food and water and became more tolerant of the cooler temperatures and only returned back to the brooder when they were cold. They also developed more of a bond as they are forced to be in a close area. The chicks also slept through the entire night during the first night because there is no light that the brooder gives off. Since the brooder, they are now on a normal sleep schedule and do not make a peep during the night. I also noticed a change in their personality within two days of using this. They slept better, became more independent, and socialized much better than with the heat lamp. I like how you can regulate the temperature as they age. The brooder allows you to adjust the height of the plate. You can also make one side higher than the other. I have have one side higher than the other because I did not know how much warmth they wanted. Now, our bigger chick stays on the higher end as its cooler there where as the other two stay on the other, more warmer, side. The hot plate itself isn't that hot. It gives off little to no energy (12 watts I believe). My suggestion is if you have more than 6-8 larger breed chicks, I would likely purchase the larger version of this brooder.
Safer than heat lamp, chicks like it
They seem to enjoy running for cover with this brooder and seem to feel more protected than with the chicks raised under a heat lamp. After the heat lamp started a small fire in the brooder we're glad we purchased this and it is so much safer, we can relax.
Item is as good as advertised! Easy care & assembly. Nice that peeps know it's bedtime when lights are out. Works perfect & my new chicks are doing great!
