In nature, chicks sit under the hens’ feathers. However, many hobby breeders use incubators. As soon as those eggs have hatched, the chicks will need something different to keep them warm. Enter, the heating plate. An ideal solution, since the chicks will position themselves underneath the plate whenever they need the warmth. Just as in nature. In a sense, the heating plate is the perfect replacement for the hen. The chicks will quickly get used to the heating plate’s much colder immediate vicinity. In comparison to a more traditional heating bulb, this will make them harden much faster. A quicker hardening equals quicker feather growth and thus better cold protection. All of this ensures strong and healthy chicks and makes the Heating Plate the ideal substitute for the mother hen.
