People always ask about heat lamps the do's and the don'ts. I have not seen many pictures on how people secure their heat lamps. Here is the way I use my heat lamp and feel it to be a very secure setup. For starters never use the clamp as your sole/primary means of holding the lamp in place. One of the most secure spots of this particular heat lamp is the front cage so why not use that to your advantage(don't buy the cheap 4 wire cages). I also believe in having two securing anchor points minimum. Notice my setup is not in with the chickens but on the outside pointing in. This may not work for everyone but it will give you an idea of what can be done. This is not a thread for people to comment on not needing heat lamps!!! Rather it is a thread to help others greatly reduce the risk of hazards by sharing your ideas and pictures of a properly secured heat lamp. I do not use a heat lamp to try and heat the coop. On a cold day like tomorrow which will be 0° I offer the heat lamp as a spot for them to go in front of and warm up!! I hope you enjoy!! Front cage two anchor points: Two anchors to the wire door: Two anchors to the ceiling joist: Ceiling anchors in two different spots.
