Hi All,

I'm setting up my first brooder box. Can you please recommend the best heating source for up to 24 chicks.

Thank you!

I would say that a ceramic heat emitter would be good. They are durable and won’t emit light (so the chicks can get a proper nighttime).

This kind of thing: https://www.amazon.com.au/Pack-100W-Cer ... B079254FFP

You need to get a socket for it too: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Reptile-One ... 2375879984
