Giveaway: Brinsea Ecoglow 20 Chick Brooder

March 24, 2014

This year, we are adding new chicks to the flock. Like our original flock, we ordered six new little ones from My Pet Chicken. Come late spring we will be joined by two Buff Brahmas, a Salmon Favorelle, two Easter Eggers, and one Golden Laced Wyandotte.  We are all incredibly excited!  One other thing that has us super excited is that we can now use the Brinsea Ecoglow 20 chick brooder instead of the traditional heat lamp. Last time, we ordered chicks this awesome product was not even on the market yet.

Let me introduce you to the Ecoglow 20 chick brooder.

-First of all, it completely eliminates the use of heat lamp.
-Saves on electricity by running on 18 watts.
-The height adjusts as the chicks grow.
-One of these can keep 20 chicks warm.
-You can place more than one of these in your brooder.
-The risk of fire is greatly decreased.

Of course, I could not keep this product all to myself, so we are going to be giving one away courtesy of Brinsea. Follow the directions below to enter. Good Luck!

  1. My favorite feature is that the risk of fire is greatly decreased. Using heat lamps makes me uneasy. I've only heard good things about these heat sources, thanks for the giveaway!

  2. I think what I like most about the Ecoglow is that I don't have to worry about the house burning down (like I do with a heat lamp)!!

  3. Planning on brooding out at least a couple of runs of meat birds. This would be a great addition! The best feature to me is the less risk of fire.

  4. I always worry the cats will knock the heat lamp over and cause a fire. This Is the most important feature for me.

  5. Would love to win! I'm so done with heat lamps. Have some Cream Legbar, Ameraucana, & Marans eggs hatching next week! Thank you!

  6. This is the most natural way to brood your littles if you aren't using a broody. Great products from Brinsea!

  7. Would love to win! Have some eggs in the incubator that will be hatching next week. So done with heat lamps. Thank you!

  8. The idea of tiny fluffs to enjoy is almost more than I can bear! LOVE chicks, it has been 4 years since we had any here. Wonderful product! Pam

  9. I like the adjustable height option, as well as safety factor. Doing away with the complicated of over-hanging lamps provides more brooder design options, in my humble opinion.
    Thank you for the giveaway opportunity, Cheers! izzi~avis

  10. This spring, we are going to be adding chicks to our small flock that we started last fall. Would love for our new additions to have have such a safe way to stay warm.

  11. One day I will have one or more of these. They're bound to be more economic than those 250 watt red bulbs that I'm currently using! Thanks for the opportunity 🙂

  12. I love this product! I recently got one for my baby chicks and they are loving it. It gives me such peace of mind as I work all day and am not able to be home to keep an eye something like a heat lamp! Would love to win another one, you know…for that ever expanding flock.

  13. I was impressed with the safety features and electrical economy of the EcoGlow Brooder and purchased one for our first hatch of Silkie and Showgirl chicks. They are content and QUIET. My only regret is not purchasing the larger model, so would love to have another. 🙂 Don't make my mistake if you are buying–get the BIG one!!

  14. There are 3 things I LOVE about the Brinsea:

    -First of all, it completely eliminates the use of heat lamp.
    -Saves on electricity by running on 18 watts.
    -The risk of fire is greatly decreased.

    Thank you for the chance to win.

  15. I like that there's no worry about babies getting too hot, and then having to back off the heat lamp (to adjust the direct heat they feel). I also like that it's something they can get under…a natural instinct they babies have.

  16. I would like to have this for my chicks. You're going to love that salmon faverolle. I've had two. Best temperament. Steady layers. Great broody hens. They are small and do get picked on some by the big girls sometimes though.

  17. I've been keeping chickens for years and seem to add new chicks every year. I have 2 blue cochins under a lamp now in the dining room! This would make a wonderful addition to our chick starting kit 😉

  18. This would be a great addition to our poultry supplies. We are currently using the standard heat lamp but this type of heater appears to be much safer and more efficient to use.

  19. What a great little brooder. Last time we raised chicks I was fearful the heat lamp was going to catch fire with all the dust from the chickens. This would be a relief to have.

  20. There are so many things I like about this brooder. I like the safety aspect of course but I also love that the height is adjustable for different breeds and it's only 18 watts which will please my hubby. My kids and I would love to win this! My sons are ready for a chick raising adventure and we all need to feed our chicken obsession.

  21. This is great new technology for brooding chicks. I often worry about over heating with a heat lamp and the electricity is wildly expensive. I'm wondering if this uses less electricity. Great idea, great giveaway. Thanks

  22. I really appreciate the safety factor of the Brinsea Eco Glow Brooder. We have been using heat lamps and our brooder is in our bedroom, at least for the first couple of days, then downstairs in the basement until the chicks feather out and the weather permits them to be moved outside.

  23. I love the simplicity and safety, PLUS it will be nice to not have red heat lamps, which will make it easier to see the true colors of the baby chicks while they live in the brooder. I really hope I win! I'm getting 12 chicks early May so would be nice to have it 🙂

  24. One thing that always bothered me about heat lamps is the hot spot it creates and all the chicks crowd together. This product is great because the heat is evenly distributed across a large area. What a great invention!

  25. I recently saw a post on Facebook about a terrible barn fire caused by a heat lamp. I am so nervous about using one for my new chicks now. I would love to own a Brinsea Ecoglow 20 chick brooder because it is safer, and more economical! I love hatching out new chicks and know I would use this a lot! Thanks! <3

  26. As someone who has lost two coops and four chicks to a fire caused by a heat lamp, I would love the Ecoglow to put my mind at ease when I am raising chicks. I think it would offer greater peace of mind for me and my family.

  27. I think the safety is the best feature. I worry about fire from heat lamps. Mould be nice to not worry so much about the babies being under the heat lamp I have. Find myself waking up to check on them at night to make sure they are okay under the lamps. 🙂

  28. I think the safety is the best feature. I worry about fire from heat lamps. Mould be nice to not worry so much about the babies being under the heat lamp I have. Find myself waking up to check on them at night to make sure they are okay under the lamps. 🙂

  29. We've read a lot about the Brinsea brooders – they seem really amazing. I like how they are not a fire hazard like traditional brooder lights can be. Would love to win one!

  30. I would love to share the excitement of hatching eggs with my children! We've always bought chicks. It would be fascinating to them to see them actually hatch!

  31. I own the Brinsea incubator! But I would LOVE to have the EcoGlow for my chicks! I've been using a heat lamp, but starting to see that this really needs to change. Would love to win one! Thank you for the opportunity! 🙂

  32. This is the best and safest heater for small chicks. The constant worry when you use the lights is totally gone thus more time to just enjoy and know that the chicks are fine.

  33. I would love to win this, as I am expanding my flock. I like the fact that I could eliminate the use of the heat lamp, thus, reducing fire hazards. Also, the fact that the warmer is height adjustable is great.

  34. The Grandkids would really like to help me with this. Would love to win!

  35. Would love to give this to my Mom. She would love it as she always worries about fires. This is an awesome product.

  36. I wouldn't have to worry about the house burning down! The EcoGlow seems so much safer than traditional heat lamps. I've been looking into getting chicks for a while, and your blog has been an invaluable resource. Thank you for this giveaway!

  37. Would love to give this to my grandchildren. They buy a few chickens every year for their brood, but what fun this would be! Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

  38. Living in a 100 year old farmhouse, anything we can do to lower electric use and keep us safe from fire is a good thing. Removing heat lamps from the brooder will make us all feel safer about having out babies in the house with us. Thank you for the chance to win!

  39. Well this is my first year starting a flock and I can not wait! I pick up my chicks in a week. So I could really use this…. A lot. I had actually looked at this exact model so it would be an extra bonus!

  40. I would love to win one of these! LOVE that there is no fire risk, and the reduced electricity usage is certainly a good thing!

  41. I would so love to have one of these ecoglow for the 15 chicks that are coming in a few weeks! Thanks for the opportunity. (aviatrix.flyer at yahoo)

  42. Looking forward to my chicks arriving soon, the Ecoglow would be perfect for the brooder! (nansalomon at gmail)

  43. I would love to use this I have silkie chicks and giant cochin chicks right now and I'm going to get frizzle cochins soon.

  44. I used the heat lamp with the last set of chicks in Dec. And if the smoke alarm didn't work my whole family would be dead from the fire that started days before Christmas. I have chicks coming in July and not sure what I will do about heat lamp, really don't want it in the house again, that s for sure.

  45. I would much rather use the Brinsea Eco-Glow Brooder than my heat lamp; it makes me nervous every time I leave my house.
