Up until now I have used an infrared heat lamp in the ceiling: The girls roost on those top rafters under the lamp, so it works out well. However, we now have 2 new chickens, hen Audrey and rooster Bianco. I'm not sure where they will roost eventually, but they were only recently (over the weekend) introduced into the flock and they are staying on the very bottom roosts (ladder, just 1 foot off the floor so 6 feet below the highest roost and 7+ feet from the heat lamp. Given that heat rises, the heat lamp isn't gonna do a THING for them. So I'm wondering about mounting (securely) a ceramic heater on the wall, near to where they roost. It would heat their area plus, as the heat rises, it would heat more of the entire coop. Is this safe (if well-secured)? Will it work? Any particular ones recommended? I've just been looking at the ones at Lowes, like this: http://www.lowes.com/pd_81525-33454...ntURL=/pl__0__s?Ntt=ceramic+heater&facetInfo= Or this (non-ceramic): http://www.lowes.com/ProductDisplay...gId=10051&cmRelshp=req&rel=nofollow&cId=PDIO1 Thoughts?
