Our TLC-40 Eco has several applications.
Bird Brooding 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.
Recovery Incubator The TLC-40 Eco brooder fulfils all of the above functions very cost effectively and can also double as a Hospital Cage for sick or injured birds, used by rescue centres worldwide. Intensive Care Unit Brinsea TLC Recovery Incubators provide such an environment and are used around the world by rescue centres, breeding centres and individuals. TLC incubators are the best place for weak and fragile baby animals to heal, hide, cuddle, and grow - especially for tiny babies who aren't yet old enough to retain their own heat.
The incubators provide a warm, clean, quiet, safe and reliable haven for these 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 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 optimised to ensure consistent distribution of heat, so that all chicks are at the same temperature but with the fan maintaining gentle air speeds so that down, fluff and dust are not blown around. Protected by Biomaster Antimicrobial Additive To reduce the risk of infection Brinsea incorporate Biomaster Antimicrobial Protection into our incubator cabinets during manufacture. Biomaster Protection is embedded within the plastic itself which prevents the growth of harmful bacteria helping to provide the optimum environment for young animals.
Proven to quickly reduce bacterial growth by up to 99.99% Disinfecting tip: Please make sure that disinfectant is thoroughly rinsed off plastic parts after cleaning and avoid alcohol based solutions to avoid gradual embrittlement of plastic parts.
We have come across a small number of instances of plastic parts of the Vetario Intensive Care Units and TLC brooders becoming degraded, brittle and breaking – particularly around the screws on the door hinges) due to the action of some disinfectants. To avoid this don't use disinfectants containing alcohol and take care that all traces of disinfectants or cleaning agents are rinsed away with water after cleaning, especially around the hinge screws.
