Select the size heater required for your location and number of chicks. Chick numbers are based on a minimum ambient temperature of 15 degrees. Lower temperatures may require a gas heater the next size up and an insulated environment.
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 hour for the chicks to settle, then adjust the height of the head until the chicks spread evenly over the brooder area.
The manual ignition heaters are available is 8 sizes. However the largest of these is not of practical use for small flocks. Please 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.
