I have been raising all my brooder chicks under heated towel rails this season, use only 90watts of power, constant temp of 37C, they fit lots of chickens under them, they perch on them, under them.. easy to clean and no replacement globes to worry about.

$79 Deals Direct.

cheers

Those towel racks are a good idea. :thumbs:
I would watch Ebay for the cheapest ceramic lamps.
An other idea is reptile heat mat's. Just put them under the wood shavings. The only problem with these is no direct contact with water.
If you are after UV light, you put a UV floresent above them.

Necessity !

too many eggs in the new incubators at once.. doing a test run..(575 old eggs- up to 5 weeks old when I put them in) couldn't get the old light globes anymore for the brooders, had ceramic heaters but they didn't cover enough chicks..
needed something 'splash proof' designed for wet areas.. so looked into these... a lucky break really that it all worked out.
ended up with over 500 chicks hatching at Xmas... they really did work well.. and so much cheaper.. a range of different sizes available.

happy with the results.

cheers
Shani

hmmm certainly food for thought using those towel rails. I use a reptile lamp which is a ceramic one but the chicks get burnt on it as it doesn't regulate the heat.

I've got burn marks on my arms from the ceramic lamps as well.

The towel rails would work perfectly in the pens in the shed. I was trying to figure out how to keep the chicks warm out there. I'm heading to the discount warehouse this afternoon to get one for tonight!

there seems to be huge differences in prices of them, I found 'Deals Direct' had them at the cheapest prices, they do take about 20 minutes to get up to heat.. but then just run stable temp and no burns.. you can also hang strips of towelling over the bars so the chicks can snuggle in and under as they are fine to be covered.

cheers

Looks good but wouldn't most of the heat just rise and be lost upwards - probably why the chicks roost on the rails; its hotter above than below.
