If using a heat-emitting bulb then a good reflector is essential. Using a reflector will trap the warmth and reflect it downwards making it much cosier for the chicks beneath it. The aluminium reflector offers a sense of protection for the chicks and will reduce unnecessary heat loss. We do not recommend using a heat emitter in a lamp holder without a reflector as the heat will all rise - remember hot air rises!
We have two sizes available. Both reflectors fit onto the ceramic bulb holder we have available for sale. Reflectors are NZ made.
