to make sure this fits.
An alternative to a heat lamp. Less fire risk. A heating plate simulates a hen keeping chicks warm beneath her feathers.
Warms up to 50 chicks. Uses only 66 watts/hr versus 175 or 250 watts used by a heat lamp.
Chicks stay warm by contact with the warm underside of the plate. The bottom-side surface of the heating plate is warm, but not hot.
Height easily adjusts from 1.5″ – 6″ using adjustable legs to accommodate the size of your chicks.
Save $$$ by purchasing heating plate kit with transparent cover as compared to purchasing the heating plate and cover separately. We strongly recommend using the cover, as it prevents older chicks from perching on plate and keeps top of plate clean.
Save $$$ by purchasing the heating plate kit, which includes the cover, as compared to purchasing the heat plate and cover separately. We strongly recommend using the cover, as it prevents older chicks from perching on top of the plate and keeps top of plate clean. An alternative to a heat lamp that uses much less electricity. Uses 66 watts vs 175 or 250 watts for a heat lamp. 16″ x 24″ heat plate accommodates up to 50 chicks. A heating plate is a different type of heat source than a heat bulb. Less of a fire risk. A heat bulb becomes very hot and radiates heat downward. By contrast, the bottom-side of the heating plate is warm, but not hot. Allow the plate 1 hour to heat the unit before placing the chicks under it. As the chicks grow, increase height of the plate above the bedding with the adjustable push-button legs. Plate is most effective when chicks can touch the plate, especially when they are newly hatched. Heating plate is made of ABS plastic and polyurethane insulation. Requires 110 volt outlet. Has 70″ cord length. 1 year limited warranty on electrical heat plate unit.
