Introducing the New EcoGlow Safety 600 chick brooder from Brinsea, a truly effective way to keep your newly hatched poultry, game and waterfowl chicks warm and safe.

The new EcoGlow safety 600 brooder is the new and improved version of the popular EcoGlow 20 model. Brinsea has made some adjustments to the design to improve usability and effectiveness of the brooder while keeping the costs low.

Below is a list of the main changes and benefits;

  • A new flared 'skirt' around the heater retains more heat, improving efficiency and reducing energy use.
  • The height of the brooder is now adjusted by twisting the legs to make it higher or lower, this makes it quicker and easier than the previous model, whilst giving you a vast variety of height variations.
  • New and improved heater plate, this improves the heat radiation and evenness of the temperature.
  • Clear plastic covers are now available as optional extras to aid cleaning.
  • The new EcoGlow safety range now comes in three different sizes.

The EcoGlow safety 600 is ideal for keeping newly hatched poultry, game and waterfowl warm for those crucial first few days and weeks and is suitable for up to 20 chicks. The low voltage heater panel warms the chick directly by contact and radiant heat.

It is more cost-friendly than a conventional infrared lamp, using around 5% of the electricity of what a 250-watt suspended lamp would cost, which is important when keeping chicks warm 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Contact with the EcoGlow 600 is a more natural way of raising chicks than a heat lamp. It avoids the stress of being an under a light both day and night, it gives the chicks the ability to get used to natural light changes of night and day, which also improves weight gain and feather growth.

Customer Reviews

Good quality product
Lucy Vincent
I bought this brooder after reading the reviews it is really really good and easy to use. I also bought the covers which I am really pleased I did as I have hatched a runner duck and it is extremely messy The Incubator shop were extremely easy to buy from, competitive prices and the delivery was very quick so I would definitely buy from them again
Joanne Evans
Bought the brooder, works perfect, chicks love it, canít praise the shop enough for how they handled my order as I messed it up myself, very professional! About to buy some covers for it now, highly recommend getting covers as the chicks love to be on it and under it and they poop everywhere haha
Great brooder, we hatched 3 ducklings and they are very happy under it and on top of it. Easy to use and adjust height. Great Product. I would definitely advise getting the covers too as my ducks love to sit on top of it and it makes cleaning a lot easier.
Arrived next day. Great alternative to mother hen.
Annie Biggerstaff
next day arrival, well packaged, does the job perfectly
N Fletcher
Excellent service and product!
David hemus
got this and it works very well we lost 3 chciks due to the heat bulb being a little too far away from the chicks and they got a little too cold and died unfortunately i ordered this and i cannot fault it we have 3 chicks under it at the moment and they are always cosy when we pick them up i suppose its a bit like snuggling up to their mummy very good brinsea item and good quality aswell brilliant.
Fantastic product. Keeps the chicks warm and happy.
Linda Lees
I have bought a brinsea incubator and a brinsea brooder , both arrived within two days of ordering and their prices are very reasonable
Item is so easy to use and chicks love it. Couldn't be happier. Thank you
Keira Stallard
Plenty of space for 6 to jostle about under. So very easy to set up and adjust Once again the service from start to finish has been exceptional.
This is a well made heater. It is rated as IPX7 which means it can take a lot of water before it is being damaged (however, you should NOT immerse it in water). My only complaint is that is overrated in terms of chick number. I have now 6 quails 2 weeks old and it is just right for them. No way you could have 20 chicken chicks when they are 2 weeks old.
Easy to set up. Cheap to run. Good little set up
Julie Harries
A great product and our new 2week old chicks took to it instantly (despite being brooded initially with a heat lamp at their origin) Easy to use and speedy efficient delivery.
Competitively priced, good quality, fast delivery and easy to assemble.
Andy McG
Excellent quick service and item delivered as stated. The product itself is excellent, really easy to assemble and the advice to have one end higher than the other was good as I've noticed the chicks do shift around quite a bit. The chicks also took to it really quickly which was reassuring.
Lee Cherone
First of all letís start off with saying how safe this ultimately is, no red hot lamp that could cause an unexpected fire, so thatís a win. Simply plug in and feel reassured that the little fluffy nugs will be kept warm and the house wonít burn down. Fully adjustable with the height so As they grow, they have more height and ultimately can reduce the heat from them because of the distance. Theyíre fairly large tho so ensure the brooder has the width to accommodate it.

Very happy with this brooder - easy to adjust the height to accommodate chicks as they grow.
Gary Gulliver
Really simple but excellent piece of kit, set up angled from back to front to allow the newly hatched quail chicks access to areas of varying heat Definitely recommend
Anthony Jones
This is the latest Brinsea priloduct I've purchased in a few weeks from this site. Delivery has been excellent and the products are awesome. I'm very pleased
I bought this together with the enclosure and cover panels for my local wildlife rescue and they are very happy with it. Currently being used for 9 ducklings. Would recommend buying the enclosure as it stops the smaller/weaker chicks being pushed out from underneath the brooder. The cover helps to keep the brooder clean as the chicks like to sit on the top. Excellent service, as always, from The Incubator Shop.
I have owned this brooder since Mid 2020 and couldn't be happier. Very safe, sturdy and easily adjustable. Can even have one side higher than the other if needed. I have had a number of hatchings of Chicks and Ducklings using this brooder. My Chicks always seem to stand on top of the brooder but it is so sturdy and robust this has never been a problem. I would recommend getting the brooder cover if you are planning to use the brooder for Ducklings. I made the inexperienced error of not and it did get extremely dirty. That being said the legs unscrew so it was easy enough to clean. Although Brinsea offer a 3 year warranty I can't imagine many people need to use this as the product is extremely good quality.
Lindsay Egan
I had been using a traditional bulb brooder which was hot, fragile and very expensive to run! I replaced it with this and was delighted with the ease of use and reduction in bills. I only hatch around 8 eggs at a time but you could use this for many more chicks. I also purchased the cover which reduces the amount of cleaning I had to do.
Charlie Heap
I use this with raptors - I like the heat from above whilst allowing air flow around the chicks
Lee mitchell
Excellent! easy to clean and to set up would say 20 quail 10 chicks
Jacqueline Curry
Great brooder. Very easy to use. Chicks love it.
Ordered late morning arrived following afternoon. Great quality product and great service from the incubator shop
Really good product, makes me feel tonnes better using this than a bulb. Chicks seem to love it too.
Susan Winter
Well what a wonderful product! Our chicks absolutely love it. Product well made. Super fast delivery and great communication. Will definitely use you again & highly recommend you to others.
Donna Murray
Great Brooder, easy to put together and adjust as the chicks grow, I have used it on 9 quail chicks so more than enough room for them even at 2 weeks old. Love that you can have one side higher so you have a good temperature gradient for them. Great quality and no more worrying about the kids going to see the chicks and a bulb being there.
excellent service, would definitely purchase from you again..
very fast delivery, good product.
Very simple and great brooder. My chicks are very happy.
I ordered this brooder after deciding my heat lamp was too temperamental. It was swiftly delivered in time for the hatch! It works really well; being able to have a gradient is perfect for the chicks to choose their preferred position. Super easy to use and set up! Would highly recommend.
Itís easy to assemble and adjust, and my pheasant chicks sleep very quietly under it at night - I barely hear a peep from them as soon as the sun goes down! I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a safer and more natural alternative to keeping their chicks warm.
Julie Botterill
Way less effort than a lamp and seems more natural for the chicks - they love it. It's also easy to clean
Great price, product and fast delivery. Thank you.
Andy jackson
Quality product delivered quickly after I had been let down by another supplier. Was missing plug adapter from box but this was sent immediately they received my email and I received it the following work day.
Great product well made and easy to assemble
Karen P
Quick delivery, easy to assemble and use, perfect for the chicks. I really like it. The only downside is it says for up to 20 chicks, they must be very small chicks as we have 10 LF chicks under it and have already had to order the 1200 after two weeks!
Really easy to set up and use. The chicks love it.
Very pleased with this item and also with this store. Had to unexpectedly hand raise two ducklings and needed something better than the heatmat I had and this product was ideal, the adjustability is great. Delivery was quick too. Also love the fact that Brinsea products are made in the U.K. thanks!
This is a great product. First time having chicks and I was unsure what to buy. I bought it along with a chick feeder and drinker. The adjustable high and long cable are handy, and it is much safer than a heat lamp as it is the perfect temperature and doesn't get too hot. The delivery was quick, along with a friendly delivery driver. To top it off, the biodegradable bag and little lollipop was a nice and surprising touch. Love this brooder, and so do the chicks!
This is a great product. Simple to use and to clean and our chicks love sitting under it and jumping on and off it!
M Bergeron
I am still waiting for my eggs to hatch but I tested the brooder and it heats up quickly. I paid for regular delivery but got it the day after I placed the order. It even came with a lollipop!
BR Poultry
In the past have always relied on lamps for my brooderrs, but replacing the bulbs can add up, and you always need to keep some in reserve. Purchased the Ecoglow on a Sunday and arrived on the Wednesday, great service. Hatched 20+ California Quail same week, and have been happy running back and forth to the brooder. Noticed a complete difference in this batch of chicks, seem to be a lot more active, and not lost one in brooder to date. Easy to adjust height, plsnty of cable for power, looks easy to clean, and quality.....
Arrived very quickly. Really easy to put together, and adjusting the height is childâÄôs play. Being able to slope the canopy is a great idea. Seems to be warm enough for the chicks.
Helen N
This has been brilliant. We got 1 week old chicks and had borrowed a friends red heat lamp but I was worried about the fire risk as well as the children kept knocking it with their hands. The EcoGlow has been great the Chicks were a little weary to start with but once they sussed out how toasty it was under there they quite happily take themselves off to sleep and it means they get use to day and night too which is great. Very happy Chicks.
Very good service and very good product
Martin Kirkland
We are delighted with this brooder and also the fantastic service from The Incubator Shop. The chicks used it straight away, it obviously lets them feel safe and secure. It is a well made robust product which we hope to be using for several years. The Service from The Incubator shop was first class, a good price, great communication and incredibly quick delivery, thank you very much indeed.
Lisa priestley
Simple to use and easy to clean. My duckling loves it. He is nice and toasty and sit on top as well as underneath. Would definitely recommend this product
After managing to hatch 3 chicks in an unlikely electric seed propagating tray after the mother hen suddenly died, we needed something to take over. I ordered this brooder, which arrived in less than 24 hours, and it is brilliant. Great design, great value and British made. The chicks love it.
Great service, canít fault product or service from this company.
Pam J
Great little brooder. Highly delighted with it and so are the chicks. Very fast delivery.
This is easy, gentle and really great for my new chicks.
Good simple to use brooder plate. Very basic and quite small for the price though! Up side with these plates is energy efficiency. Down side, if moving from lamps you will still need lighting for night feeding so young chicks can continue to grow at a good rate, so still additional energy of some form is being used. They also only heat one very small area so in the cooler months very young chicks may not leave the plate for food, so perish! Good investment to save on energy but effective use requires thought.
We are happy with the quality of the product. Easy to adjust height, even temperature = happy chicks. Initially, one of the legs was more difficult to screw in, but we managed after a few minutes.
Sally R
After reading reviews on how good this brooder is, I am very dissapointed as when I put my day olds under it they just kept pushing each other out . supposed to be for 20 chicks and I have 12. Ended up panic buying a heat lamp. Go for bigger brooder. this is ok for about 6
