I first spotted this unit at My Pet Chicken. It looked ideal. It advertises it as having a 'new plastic smell' at first, run it for a while to dissipate it. I ended up buying the unit from the Mfr because it was cheaper and in stock. When it arrived I plugged it in to see how well it operates, and whoa! not just a 'new plastic smell' - it has quite the VOC or some other chemical smell, maybe coming from the linoleum or whatever the covering is. Had to put it outside it smelled so bad. So we let it run all night Wed, still smelled the next day, ran it continuously until this evening when we installed it in the spare coop. Shut the door and opened it an hour later and whew! smelled so bad! To think they sell this for baby chicks is beyond belief! The ambient temperature was nothing to brag about either. I'm very disappointed. Has anyone else bought and experienced the same problem? Thank you.
