    watched the video. the gentleman said next time he would use a metal pipe... It is made with xmas bulbs and end caps, 3 inch pvc and wtr heater thermostat....
    please tell all sounds great..... for my two chickens in a 4 by 7 coop that is tall

    this is a "paste" from his great site.......

    No matter what kind of pets you have from lizards to dogs to chickens, the normal heat method is a heat lamp. I don't like heat lamps because they are big fire hazards. For a cheep, safe alternative I wired a row of Christmas lights to a hot water thermostat an stuffed it all in a piece of pipe. The pipe gets warm but the thermostat keeps it from getting to hot. It regulates the pipe at about 100*F. Perfect for your pet to snuggle up to or stand on to stay warm in even the coldest weather. The Christmas lights are also fused so thats another added bit of safety.

    thanks yall
