  • HIGHLY recommend optional transparent plastic plate cover to prevent older chicks from perching on top and keeps unit clean. SAVE $$$ by purchasing kit with Chick Heating Plate and Cover included 

A heating plate is not a heat source like a heat bulb; it is completely different. Less of a fire risk. The bottom-side of the heating plate is warm, but not hot. Allow the plate 1 hour to heat the unit before placing the chicks under it.

The underside of the plate is heated to approximately 125 degrees. This will feel very warm to the human hand, but the chicks will find it comfortable. The chicks go under the plate and touch their backs to it. This is similar to how a mother hen keeps her chicks warm.

As the chicks grow, increase height of the plate above the bedding with the adjustable push-button legs. Plate is most effective when chicks can touch the plate, especially when they are newly hatched. Heating plate is made of ABS plastic and polyurethane insulation. Requires 110 volt outlet. Has 70" cord length.
