My brooder lamp came with stickers on it. I did think briefly that the stickers were very close to the lamp, but then forgot to remove them. When I came down this morning there was this terrible smell of somthing burning. Those stickers were BLACK and smoldering. I am an IDIOT! Why did I not remove them when I thought about it???? We have had a couple people around here whose houses burned down because of baby chicks. idiot, idiot, idiot me. CAUTION: remove stickers from cord before use!
