Brinsea TLC-40 Eco Brooder for better brooding of exotic birds

Altricial species of birds (including all parrots and birds of prey) are blind and helpless when they hatch and it is some weeks before they are able to move around, control their body temperature and feed themselves.

During this period the young birds need to be kept in a clean, temperature controlled environment.

As they grow and develop down and feathers they can gradually tolerate lower temperatures and the breeder needs to be able to reduce the chamber temperature easily, whilst still maintaining control.

Young birds also benefit from being able to see humans from within the chamber;during this early stage in their development it is essential for young birds to become familiar with the presence of people if they are to be tame in adulthood.

The new Octagon TLC-40 Eco brooder fulfils all these functions very cost effectively and can also double as a Hospital Cage for sick or injured birds.

The Eco provides digital control and read-out of temperature whereas the TLC-40 Advance also shows humidity, includes temperature and power failure alarms and can be further supplemented by Brinsea’s optional EX Humidity Pump to provide full control of humidity too.

Functional Practicality
With hygiene a top priority for your birds, the TLC-40 Eco has been carefully designed to make cleaning as easy as possible.

The lower half of the cabinets and doors are removable allowing them to be scrubbed and immersed.

It is also easy to wipe clean the high gloss finish of the ABS plastic upper cabinet and the fan guard is simply detached to allow access to clean the fan.

Even the heater is encased in a metal tube making cleaning easy.

The control circuit is housed away from the chamber for reliability.

Airflow in the TLC-40 and has been carefully optimized to ensure consistent distribution of heat, so that all chicks are at the same temperature but with the fan maintaining gentle airspeeds so that down and dust are not blown around.
