    Does the bottom of the bird bath heater also generate heat or just the top?

    Most birdbath heaters are safe for plastic buckets, it should say on the box.

    Careful, though. I've read online of some of these cheap ones malfunctioning and delivering a shock.

    If you are wanting to water out of an open bucket, get a heated dog water dish. I got one at tractor supply. They work fine.
