An excellent source of heat for newly hatched chicks.
Unlike other light bulbs, ceramic heat emitters generate only ceramic radiant heat - not light. This not only saves you energy but also prevents keeping your animals awake at night, simulating a natural cycle and promoting greater health, growth and vitality. Because no energy is wasted as light, they are much warmer than a standard 100W light globe and give off intense radiant heat very quickly - perfect for raising your young chicks, pheasant and ducklings. Ceramic heat emitters also last much longer than conventional lighting bulbs which helps offset the upfront costs. They have a very long life span of up to 10 000 hours if used correctly. They are suitable as a constant heat source for both poultry and in terrariums. Protect against water splashes and knocks.
IMPORTANT: Use only in ceramic bulb holders.
Here at Appletons we have used the Trixie Ceramic 75W Emitters in our chick brooders for nearly 15 years. Perfect size for doing a small number of chicks - especially inside.
