    Is it dangerous or bad to have one of those light bulbs that flash a little while off because it is gathering energy in a incubator? (I have the thermostat so while its off it will flash a little)

    I don't know of the light bulb you speak of, but if it IS just flashing while the thermostat has the bulb off, I suppose it would be ok. I don't know of anyone else that has a situation quite like this. A flash should not generate enough heat to be a problem… why is it you are using a bulb like this instead of a regular old fashion Thomas Edison light bulb? Different is good.

    Best of luck with your hatch,

    I am not sure how much heat those bulbs put out, but I would not think that a flash would hurt. Good luck PB

    It should be fine. As long as you get heat from it. Just my opinion. [​IMG]
