The EcoGlow 20 Chick Brooder is ideal for keeping newly hatched poultry, game and waterfowl warm. The low voltage heater panel warms chicks directly and is more economical (it uses a tenth of the electricity of a typical suspended infrared lamp) and is safer to use than infra-red heat lamps  A typical heat lamp runs at 250 watts compared with 20 watts consumption for the EcoGlow. When you consider that the brooder is on 24/7, this is an important saving.

The EcoGlow 20 has three height settings for different sized chicks and its tough plastic construction makes it durable and easy to clean. Designed to meet the stringent IPX7 electrical safety standard. The EcoGlow 20 runs from a 12v power source for complete peace of mind and uses just 18 Watts of power to keep up to twenty chicks warm. Supplied with a mains power adapter with an Australian plug type with a generous 3m+ power lead as standard.

Dimensions of the heat plate is 20 cm by 30 cm. Height adjustment for three heights, 7cm, 11cm and 15cm.

    This is the 2nd EcoGlow I have. I also purchased the larger one as well. Worth the money. I have 2 brooder boxes on the go during the season. Chicks don’t huddle at all. Adjustable height and no more pastey bums. I recommend either or both these items.

    Fantastic heater. I’ve been using mine for 2 years now. The chicks really love it. My only criticism is that I think that the system for height adjustment needs to be reviewed. It is too easy to break the plastic leg clips when popping the heat pad both in and out. A system like is used on the larger heater with screw legs would work much better.

    This brooder is a good product. It keeps my chicks very warm and it’s very easy to clean. I am also concerned the clips that hold the legs in place may break when removing them to either clean the unit or adjust the height.
