I bought one of these last Fall: http://www.ruralking.com/farm-innov...m_medium=cpc&gclid=CKaq_dG66MsCFQwxaQodC6kCLQ Still in the box, but I'm tempted to use it for my chicks this year. I don't like the lamps, and I'm afraid that I might start a fire in my barn from one, which is where I have my brooder, which used to be a steel 110 gallon water trough that sprung a leak. (I put 3-4 inches of garden dirt on the bottom, then pine shavings.) Has ANYBODY else used one of these, and what are your opinions. I'll be starting chicks end of April. Thanks!
