TLC-50 Advance for better brooding of exotic birds, recovery of sick, injured or orphaned birds or mammals. 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. TLC-50 Advance brooder fulfills all these functions very cost effectively and can also double as a Hospital Cage/Intensive Care Unit or Recovery Incubator for sick or injured birds and mammals. TLC intensive care units/recovery incubators are also the best place for weak and fragile baby animals to heal, hide and grow – especially for tiny babies who aren’t old enough to retain their own heat. The incubators provide a warm, clean, quiet, safe and reliable haven for orphaned baby animals. Many young babies need extra help to survive in those early days and a safe, secure, controlled environment gives them the best chance to recover and thrive. The TLC-50 Advance provides digital control and read-out of temperature and humidity, includes temperature and power failure alarms and can be further supplemented optional TLC Advance Humidity Pump for full control of humidity. With hygiene a top priority for your animals, the TLC-50 Advance has been carefully designed to make cleaning as easy as possible. The lower half of the cabinet and door 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-50 Advance and has been carefully optimized to ensure consistent distribution of heat, so that all animals are at the same temperature but with the fan maintaining gentle air speeds so that down and dust are not blown around. The TLC-50 Advance brooder/Intensive care unit comes with a full 3 year warranty.
