I know, I shouldnt need to worry about heat lamps in maryland....
If you go that route, be certain that they are fastened really well and cannot fall into litter and start a fire. Chickens will knock down anything not firmly fastened inside of a coop. Other thing is to always use a reflector behind the bulb to aim the heat where it needs to go. It makes the lamp 3 times more effective.

Quote:Love your story of how crate coop was born...LOL!! Being a wife, I could picture yours saying "Fine, but..." Hehehee Cute coop too!
nice set up!
Quote:Thanks it's working pretty well. Today was the first real test as we woke up to 7 below zero and the fount wasn't frozen solid, unlike the crate coop which has a dedicated fount heater this coop just relies on ambient air temps and the fact that the heat lamp pretty much shines right on the fount.
that looks like the best way to have your lamps!
