Came up with an interesting method of hanging my heat lamps

    Set up two XL rubbermaid totes as brooders today to separate the chicks and ducks. They are in a storage room about 4 feet wide. I bought one of those shower curtain tension rods, set it at the height I wanted and locked it in place. Now I can raise the lights as needed each week and not try to rig something up. *they are attached by another rope to an anchor point higher up in case the rod lets loose*

    Good job, but I don't see the safety rope.

    Very neat and tidy!! Where are the secondary safety lines for the heat lamps? Maybe they were installed after the pics were taken?
