Product Info:

  • An alternative to a heat lamp. Less of a fire risk. A heating plate simulates a hen keeping chicks warm and cozy beneath her feathers.
  • Chicks stay warm by contact with warm underside of the plate. The bottom-side plate surface is warm, but not hot.
  • Height easily adjusts from 1.5" - 6" using adjustable legs to accommodate the size of your chicks.
  • Warms up to 15 chicks. Requires 110 volt outlet and uses 15 watts per hour.
  • Save $$$ by purchasing heating plate kit with transparent cover included, as compared to purchasing the heating plate and cover separately. We strongly recommend using the cover, as it prevents older chicks from perching on plate and keeps top of plate clean.

A heating plate is a different type of heat source than a heat bulb. Less of a fire risk. A heat bulb becomes very hot and radiates heat downward. By contrast, the bottom-side of the heating plate is warm but not hot. An alternative to a heat lamp that uses much less electricity. Uses 15 watts vs 175 or 250 watts for heat lamp.

Allow the plate 1 hour to heat the unit before placing the chicks under it. As the chicks grow, increase height of the plate above the bedding with the adjustable push-button legs. Plate is more effective when chicks can touch the plate, especially when they are newly hatched. Heating plate is made of ABS plastic and polyurethane insulation and cover is heavy transparent plastic. Requires 110 volt outlet and has 70" length cord.
