anyone tried a sweeter heater instead of brooder bulb arrangement?

I am considering a Sweeter Heater purchase for my chick brooder box and later on my coop to keep the water from freezing. Anyone have any feedback?

I had never heard of it so I just looked it up. Looks like a great idea to me!

I just bought a ceramic heat emitter for my upcoming brood or I would have gotten one of them!

Do you mean you don't think the sweeter heater would be good for coop heating, or the ecoglo?

look at those happy babies! It seems like a safer option to a bulb with my kids around. I hope it works well!

How many chicks can get under that? The site says 20 chicks or ducklings, I have about 30ish coming (you know, chicken math). Think it would be ok? I don't want to buy 2, otherwise I think I will go with the ceramic lamp.
