TPerfect for raising chickens during their first few weeks of life. Once birds begin to feather and become flighty, move to a more secure setup (where they can’t fly out).
The underside of the heating plate is warm but not hot—the chicks go under the plate, so it almost touches their backs. This is similar to how a mother hen keeps her chicks warm. The rugged plate cover prevents older chicks from perching on top and fouling the unit with droppings. However, the plate can be hand-washed to remove dust and debris.
As the chicks grow, use the adjustable legs to increase the height of the plate above the bedding and chicks.
