Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST chick heater EVER! This is a terrific chick heater. I will use no other kind! It is expensive for what it is but it was well worth every penny! I have used it on 6 batches of chicks so far and it is worked flawlessly evey time. The chicks take to it like a mother hen! There are a few negative reviews because of how the legs attach. I admit, that design could be improved to make it easier to raise or lower. The trick - set the unit on an end, use a screw driver in the the leg slot where the tab connects to the leg and pry (very gently) the leg out so the tab pops out. Do the same to pop it back when you have it adjusted to the correct height. Do not "snap" it into place - it WILL break. Pry it out and gently remove the leg/tab. Other than the adjustment being a bad design - this unit is worth the price. Our chicks LOVED it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly I bought this because I was skeptical about a traditional heat bulb which could start fires. The unit is easy to assemble and raise as the chicks grow. The cord is long and I never worried it would get to hot for the chicks or bedding. I would definitely buy this unit as it worked exactly as I expected it to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product but there are issues This was very helpful in brooding a recent hatch. I recommend starting it a day early so the temperature stabilized as it was too hot at first. I also find that locking the heating platform into the side supports is not easy and is hard to remove to elevate the platform each week until brooding period is finished.

Is it safe being that close to bedding? I would be worried about a fire hazard.

Asked by: TammyM
There is no risk of fire with the EcoGlow. It is a radiant heater which only uses 18 Watts (a tenth of the electricity of typical suspended infrared lamps) because the chicks are in contact with its warm underneath surface. Radiant heat passes through air without warming it. Only a solid object like a chick will absorb and be warmed by radiant heat. The Ecoglow brooder runs at 12v for safety from a mains transformer (supplied) and with the convenience of a generous (about 10 feet) power lead.

Is there a temperature adjustment on this product?

Asked by: Emmiemat
There is no adjustment. The brooder provides a constant 18 watts.

Hi I have a box brooder that the heater broke and saw this. I am wondering if it will be ok to put this inside the unit. It fully closes. The dimensions are 32” X 38” X 12”.  Is this ok to use inside of this unit? It is mesh with vented side panels. 

Asked by: Cortney
Yes it will be fine provided there is ventilation and the chicks can freely move from under the Ecoglow and find their own comfort zone.

Would this be okay for a small number of chicks? Such as 4-6?

Asked by: E213
Absolutely!

What are the different heights it can be? At the tallest, how old are the chicks.

Asked by: marty tee
At the lowest setting there is just short of 3 inches clearance and at the tallest just short of 6 inches. How old the chicks are really depends on the breeds but typically several weeks old when they are pretty much fully feathered.
