Brinsea® Ecoglow chick brooders are highly efficient low cost brooders ideal for keeping newly hatched chicken, game and waterfowl warm. They are available in 2 sizes: the EcoGlow 20 suitable for up to 15 chicks and the EcoGlow 50 for up to 40 chicks.

These radiant heaters are far more efficient than conventional infra red brooder lamps as well as being much safer since they run from a 12volts transformer. The brooder panel height can be adjusted to match chicks of different sizes from quail to goose.

Altricial species of birds (including all parrots and birds of prey) are blind and helpless when they hatch and it is some weeks before they are able to move around, control their body temperature and feed themselves.

During this period the young birds need to be kept in a clean, temperature controlled environment as free as possible from airborne contaminants such as fungal spores and dust. As they grow and develop down and feathers they can gradually tolerate lower temperatures and the breeder needs to be able to reduce the chamber temperature easily, whilst still maintaining control. Young birds also benefit from being able to see humans from within the chamber; during this early stage in their development it is essential for young birds to become familiar with the presence of people if they are to be tame in adulthood.

The TLC-40 and TLC-50 parrot brooders fulfil all these functions very cost effectively and can also double as an Intensive Care Unit or Hospital Cage for sick or injured birds. The two models differ in size; the TLC-40 brooder has an effective volume of 40 litres (10 US gallons) and the TLC-50, 100 litres (26 US gallons).

Furthermore each model is available with either Eco or Advance control system.

The Eco provides digital control and read-out temperature.

The Advance also shows humidity, includes temperature and power failure alarms and can be further supplemented by Brinsea’s optional Humidity Pump to provide full control of humidity too. The Advance versions include switchable internal LED lighting which is both efficient and effective.
