Chick brooder 75w element comes as a lollipop shaped element and emits radiant heat for brooding – no light emitted. This Brooder ceramics are of the highest quality available and the socket is UK made high heat tolerant plastic, not ceramic which chips and breaks.
When brooding chicks, ensure the shed is enclosed with insulation, and has a room temperature about 15 degrees Celcius or warmer with no draught. If the shed is open, and in a very cold area, a larger element (higher wattage) should be selected. You will require a box or surround to keep the chicks together. A round surround ensures there is constant movement rather than gathering or potentially crushing in a corner.
