On a Thread titled "Holy Crap, My Bulb Exploded" are some EXTREMELY HELPFUL replies and recommendations BESIDES these Red Bulbs which are a Fire Hazard. Like other stories posted I Luckily was working in the Barn when my Bulb Blew Up. No hurt chickens but Shattered ALL over. I beleive bulb is so hot and it was REALLY Cold even in the barn. Other BYC members have suggested CERAMIC HEAT EMITTERS from the reptile section of the Pet Store. This is a much safer solution. Maybe they will chime in with stories. I WILL NOT use a Red Bulb again and BEG you not to leave your house with these left on! I really am not out to make people that work for these companies lose a job but these are A FIRE HAZARD. UPDATE: Appears we are talking about the less Expensive Bulbs here NOT the Pyrex type. So beware of these cheaper versions. CHEAPER Is NOT always Better!
