    Thanks Ron.[​IMG]
    I have 2 large Premier ones and 1 small one and I LOVE them. The ecoglow was the first one I got and it has had several leg problems. They have already replaced it once. From now on I'm sticking with the premier one plates. I really like the small one I just got. It fits in my brooder better. I also got the nipple drinker they just put in the catalog that sits on top of the brooder plate. The chicks started using it at 2 days old. Sitting on top of the brooder plate keeps it warm and it stays clean. Somebody at Premier one is thinking!

    Premier is also a farm so the really do come up with stuff that works.

    I have the drinker as well and a screw mount for the side of the brooder.

    Mine were using it right away and then started using the vertical water nipple within a week. It s so less messy for them. My TJ's chicks are very active!(from the NYD Hatch a long)

    Oh no ! I'm so sorry [​IMG][​IMG] I think these plates need to come with an alarm so we know when it quits ! If we're gonna pay for the things anyway i would pay a couple extra $'s for some kind of alarm. Good luck with the warranty, ask them about replacing ur chicks too. [​IMG]
