    I bought 2 new heat bulbs for my baby ducks & 2 goslings a couple days ago. well i got them all put in and #1 turned white and crapped out within an hour and #2 just cracked and quit working!!!!! I am so irritated [​IMG]

    We bought a red heat light months ago and it's still working great, even after all the water and muck abuse form the ducklings!
    The goslings & 5 babies will have to live with a regular light bulb til i get back from returning these crappy ones. [​IMG]

    I hate Wal Mart. I have been boycotting them since before christmas. I was happy to see in the news that their American sells are slowy falling and shoppers are going elsewhere.

    i hate them too! i try so hard to get my parents to stop shopping there, but everyone thinks it a great thing and wont stop. We are endorsing monopolies!! urg it makes me feel so helpless. 100 years ago this was a bad thing.

    We're in the same boat, I live in Australia and everything is made in CHINA!!!! It's infuriating! Glad we don't have Walmart as yet.

    I never use a heat lamp for my chicks anyway, a 100w light bulb or a 75 watt works just fine.

    BTW, I am not too crazy about Wal-mart either, but I work there so, I know what the workers go through. I do it, but it ain't fun.
