The manual ignition gas brooders are available is 8 sizes, however the largest of these is not of practical use for small flocks. Requires a hose and regulator. These heaters are radiant heaters and emit radiation at the correct wavelength for effective body heating without wasting energy heating the air. Select the size heater required for your location and number of chicks. Chick numbers are based on a minimum ambient temperature of 15 degrees. These chick brooders require a proper high pressure regulator (not a low pressure one like a BBQ regulator), hose
Please remember to order well in advance as these units can take 4-6 weeks, or longer, to arrive in stock.
Remember that the brooder should always be at approx 10 degree angle to the floor. These larger units need extra considertion of height, ventilation and room design, and may be better suited with auto ignition and control systems.
