When it comes to heating the brooder, I've noticed that a lot of instructions say to use a heat lamp or regular light bub. I was wondering if there has to be light, or if I can use one of the many Ceramic Heat Emitters I have. Here is an image and description of the item I'm talking about: ReptiCare Ceramic Heat Emitters are the perfect 24 hour heat source for all reptiles. These porcelain heating devices screw into a standard porcelain incandescent socket, giving off intense "muscle-penetrating" infrared heat, while emitting no light. The flat-faced design is more efficient and longer lasting than conical designs which build up excess heat internally, ultimately carbonizing the element. Additional Information: # Last up to 5 years # Perfect for high humidity terrariums # UL/cUL classified when used in conjunction with Zoo Meds Wire Cage Clamp Lamp (LF-10). I have extras of these laying around, and thought maybe I can put it to good use as I could leave it on all the time and it would be less likely to short out or keep the chicks up at night. Thoughts please?
