Perfect for requirements

The starter package is amazing! We had raised rescued wild ducklings before but wanted something better suited for our indian runners. Everything was in great condition and arrived promptly. Definitely better than ducklings taking over my bathtub!!

Appletons Chick Brooder Starter Package for Rearing Day Olds

Has everything we need

This Starter pack was just what we need. We have free range chickens that just roam across our 10 acres, and they have been terrible mothers in the past. When we find a chick away from its mum we have to try and hand rear them. It has been really handy to have this set up, and if and when we find chicks we are quickly able to get them warmed up and fed in an easy clean enclosure. Thanks Heaps

Choose from two different heat options.
Each option has a different type of chick drinker.

RADIANT Heat + 1.3L Chick Crown Drinker

The heat source is the Appletons 100W heat package. The heat source is secured by chain and snap hooks to the wire top and the chicks enjoy and thrive in the radiant heat emitted by the tradional use of a heat emitter. This is the best set up you can provide your newly hatched chicks, pheasants, ducklings and quail. The quality ceramic heat bulb emits only heat (no light) so you chicks will have the warmth they need without light 24/7. This is a more natural way to raise chicks as the chicks will get a good night's sleep and a rested gut rather than feeding and being active 24/7. We also sell the heat emitter bulbs separately as always good to have a spare at hand.Using the traditional method of radiant heat the chicks will grow fast and do well and the whole family can enjoy watching them grow.

CONTACT Heat + Chick Nipple Bottle Drinker 1L

The heat source is a 25cm x 25cm Comfort Heat Plate. Heat plates are a very natural heating system for chicks as it simulates the natural heating of a mother hen and makes for healthier chicks. Chicks love to pop under mother hen for security and warmth and the Comfort Heat Plate does just the same. It is ideal to use for different types of poultry, ducks, pheasants and quail. The beauty about these heat plates is that they are very economical to run so will in the long run be a cost saving investment. These plates are very easy to use and with the new unique height adjustment system it makes setting the height easy. Safety has been ensured by incuding both a temperature and resistance fuse.
