Brinsea TLC-30 Advance Brooders/Intensive Care Unit
Eco & Advance
Altricial species of birds (including all parrots and birds of prey) are blind and helpless when they hatch, and it takes 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 that is as free as possible from airborne contaminants such as fungal spores and dust.
As they develop down feathers, they can tolerate lower temperatures, and the breeder needs to be able to reduce the chamber temperature easily while still maintaining control. Young birds also benefit from being able to see humans from within the chamber; during this early stage of 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 TLC-30 Eco and Advance parrot brooders fulfill all these functions very cost-effectively and can also double as a Recovery Incubator or Hospital Cage for sick or injured birds and mammals. Animals such as neonatal kittens, baby squirrels, baby raccoons, and even hedgehogs can greatly benefit from time spent in a TLC unit.
Intensive Care Unit
TLC units are used around the world by breeding facilities, rescue centers, and individual wildlife rehabbers.

The TLC incubators provide a warm, clean, quiet, safe, and controlled environment, giving these orphaned animals the best chance to recover and thrive.
