"Love my Brooder Clamp Lamp"
Pros - No assembly, just add a bulb and plug in; Lasts a long time
Cons - Wish you could adjust the brightness of the light
I've had this lamp for two years and it still works great! Love it, no issues. I am currently using it now with my baby chicks. I wish it came with a pole that would allow you to easily adjust, but other than that- no complaints.
""Not a great lamp""
Pros - Provided heat without burning out, easy to setup.
Cons - Not very safe, the grill falls off.
For me, I would have to choose the Prima Heat Lamp from premier 1 supplies for my future heat lamp. This one was responsible for burning one of my chickens. The grill is constantly falling off and is just not safe enough.
Pros - Adjustable so if the chicks are too hot or cold you can move it.
Cons - Sometimes the bulb burns out.
This brooder is great! Keeps chicks warm and if they're too hot it you can clamp it higher up. However, it doesn't have a good guard so if the chicks get flighty, they can jump into the hot bulb. Yikes! Another thing that freaks me out is that if I have to go to the store, there is a chance that the bulb will burn out. I check the chicks before I go to bed, but once or twice the bulb has burnt out in the middle of the night and I awake to chilled chicks. Let me say that this problem is with the LIGHTBULB, not the brooder. Any single bulbed brooder like this is going to have the risk of bulbs going out. Still, it worries me. I always feel uncomfortable using these. Overall, though, it is a good brooder.
