Help keep your feathered friends warm. Set a "Chicken Pad" heater on the floor of your brooder to help your chickens get a little more comfortable. If you've got your flock in a colder environment like a garage or basement, a little heat coming from below can make all the difference in their comfort level. You can also use the pad to provide your flock a safe source of warmth in the winter. (Ever had a hen fall in a bucket of water in the middle of
winter? We have, and ours would have loved this heated pad to warm up on!)
Thermostatically controlled, the 60-watt Chicken Pad reaches between 100 and 105°, which means your birds have to come in direct contact with it to feel its warmth. It's not intended to heat the entire inside of a coop -- which is a good thing! Why not to heat your coop in winter.
If you have a larger flock or want to provide more birds with some warmth, consider upgrading to any one of these safer heater options. (Use anything but the dreaded 250-watt infrared light bulb!)
Please bear in mind that this pad is NOT warm enough for new baby chicks unless they are being raised in a very hot environment. In most cases, you will need a more significant source of heat for babies. Use this only as a supplemental source of heat:
These heater pads are an easy-to-clean plastic, which reach a safe 100 to 102°.
