I was hesitant to purchase this after reading some of the reviews of it but figured I had better take a chance as my rooster is getting older and I've been worrying about him with all the single digit and below temperatures we've been having. I have a very small coop, about the size of a large dog house, and only 2 hens and a rooster so this little heating pad is perfect. It does not get really warm, but I think that is also a good thing as I don't want my chickens to become dependent on it for warmth either. I believe it is just enough for their little home, I have felt it on zero degree mornings and it is just slightly warm, which is perfect when the coop is closed up for the night. It is a hard plastic so no worries on having them peck at it. It was very simple to drill a couple holes in it and screw it onto the wall. I have the floor of the coop loaded with sawdust and hay on top for insulation so the wall seemed a better choice. I would definitely recommend this little heated pad!
My coop is not real large, so wall mounting this “plastic heating pad” literally takes up no space. The warmth radiating off of it is “just right” to keep the girls comfortable without the worry of the intensity of a heating lamp focused-heat on the bedding. This is my first use of the product and since it is always on, I hope it will continue working for a long while.
Love these things because they are warmer than most and clean up soo well! They seem to last longer have many cats to keep warm in out and in garage! 40 watt for me is the best! Received it sooo fast! My cats love the paper and the box it comes in!
It’s not able to be added to an extension cable and doesn’t get warm enough. So we wound up just getting another lamp. Don’t waste the money.
I bought this as a second heater for my outdoor chicken’s coop. It doesn’t even get warm and chickens literally avoid. Please don’t waste your money.
The pictures are misleading . I thought I would be as big as shown in the picture . Not what I was looking for . Also there are no mounts to hang it on the wall as shown in the picture .
Durable. Easy to clean. Just the right amount of warmth. SMALL. SMALL. SMALL. Good for about 1-2 fully grown chickens.
We have quail chicks. We attached this to a side wall of their nest box. It works great.
I bought this for my Mama Doe's and it works pretty good. I mounted it on the side of the cage and pushed the nesting box beside it to keep babies warm. I just wish it was a little warmer but overall I like it. I can close all sides of the rabbits hutch and it's about a 10-12 degree difference. I would recommend giving it a try. I did not place it inside with the rabbits, it's mounted on the side of the wire pen so not sure if would stand up to chewing.
Excellent product. Miss Priss loves roosting on it and delivery was exceptionally fast. Thank you so much, I have a very happy pet chicken.
