    As I look into a way to keep the duck house a little warmer, I am thinking of adding this.

    Has anyone here used them for ducks? Is 102F too warm?

    I haven't ever used one before, but it should be plenty high enough. a ducks body temp is high compared to a humans ranging from 106˚-108˚
    So really as long as they have a wing block they should be fine.

    I used one of these last year and it seemed to work great. They just sat on it when they got cold. I had no other supplemental heat the whole winter for my calls ducks and they all survived a very cold January.
