These heaters are radiant heaters and emit radiation at the correct wavelength for effective small 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 Celcius. If you experience lower temperatures you may need to purchase the next size gas brooder up.
To set the heat for the chicks:
a/ Set the regulator to 7.
b/ Set at recommended height.( see starting height table)
c/ Allow min 1 hour before placement of chicks.
d/ Place the chicks, allow 1 houre for the chicks to settle, then adjust the height of the head until the chicks spread evenly over the brooder area.
Remember that the brooder should always be at approx 10 degree angle to the floor.
Please order well in advance as these may take 4-6 weeks or longer to arrive in stock.
