I will be getting 4 standard chicks. I will be keeping them indoors in my mudroom, which averages temp about 60-65 degrees right now (chicks are coming next week). I am super super super paranoid about fire (I have SIX smoke detectors on the 2nd floor of my house, where there's only 3 small bedrooms and 2 bathrooms), so lamp setup/safety is really important to me if I want to be able to sleep at night. I wanted to use this as a brooder: http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2753290 I thought I'd use this as a lamp: http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2753959 I'll use a red reptile bulb of either 40, 60 or 100 watts, depending on the temp in the brooder, etc. I know "clamp" lamps aren't very secure. I plan to lay the lamp on the top of the cage, with the light aimed down toward the chicks (the way everyone seems to do it lol). The clamp won't be to hold the lamp in position, but I will use it for a little extra security to make sure the lamp doesn't roll off or get bumped off or anything. Since it looks like the wire on the rabbit cage is painted, what do you think the odds are that a 100 watt bulb will cause it to smoke/fire? Overall, does this sound like a safe and happy set-up for both my house and the chicks? Thanks!
