"Great for puppies"
Bought these for puppies. Gets warm but not hot so no worry about too hot or burns/dangers. Cord is 5 1/2 foot which is longest I've found and makes it to outlet. You can't use an extension cord for heaters without high fire risk so long cord is essential. It's also wire wrapped to help reduce chewing. We added a plastic split sleeve cover found at local hardware store to help protect it further. Highly recommend this item.
"Eggs at -8"
Coming to you from a chilly -8 Wisconsin this morning, with a wind-chill of -26. Yet, I am happy to report I have some happy chickens. How do I know my ladies are happy? Chickens require a certain amount of light and heat in order to produce eggs-usually 45 ̊ or warmer and 10 hours or more of light. Thanks to the Thermo-Poultry Water, the Thermo-Chicken Heated Pad and my dome lamp, I found eggs in my coop this morning. I have never had eggs during this cold of temps.
