    Hi everyone,

    Does anyone have experience setting up propane brooders like the one found here? Are they a fairly simple hookup to a run of the mill portable tank like you'd get at Lowes, or is it a complicated setup involving fixed gas lines where you really need professional help to get it done?

    Would really like to get away from heat lamps this year; any help is appreciated!

    No experience with one of those, but I used a Sweeter Heater for mine and it was fantastic (didn't want a heat lamp in the house):
