    "This really works well"
    Pros - Safe. Safe. Safer.
    Cons - None. Really.
    This works just as it should. It doesn't overheat and the chick really like it. I don't have to worry about a heat lamp fire; which is a real concern.

    I would like to see everyone use one of the vice the red-hot lights. Plus the chickens don't get used to having a light on 24/7.

    "100 Stars! Seriously."
    Pros - Economical heat, chicks LOVE LOVE LOVE them. Simple to clean, use, store, and versatile in how you use them. Sturdy. Priced right. I recommend them to everyone. I loan mine out and then they buy their own.
    Cons - Can't think of even one. Maybe that I'd like to own at least two more of the two bigger sizes.
    These are fabulous. I use them for the hatchlings, the singletons that need their own crib, and or older birds that need some TLC. I double and triple stack them in the brooder for entertainment and for the chicks to pick a level to sleep or perch. Marvelous. I stopped using the clear stick-on plastic as they clean up easily and nicely. Buy as many as you can afford. I have 5 so far would like 7 :) We have raised 100's of chicks with these plates. I actually have three plates stacked now. They love it.

    "Bought the 10x10 and it's Magic."
    Pros - Keeps chicks quiet and warm. They stay quiet mostly all night. It's safer. An extra temp control cord can be added and it's alot less expensive than Brinsea
    Cons - maybe too small for alot of chicks but there are more sizes.
    This thing is nothing short of magic. It's my first time trying it and last time trying anything else. I love that they can move out from all sides. My chicks end up scooting and still sleeping far from it and still seem comfortable. thumbnail (5).jpg thumbnail (4).jpg thumbnail (3).jpg

    I have used these for several years now. I have them in small, med, and large and I wouldn't trade them for anything.
    1. No danger of fire or a bulb burning out and getting the chicks cold.
    2. Easily adjustable as the chicks grow
    3. Gives the chicks a day/night cycle and mine seem to be better off from that.
    4. Very sturdy and well made. Takes lots of abuse.
