    Yup, got mine. I only use the 60's for keeping chicks warm out of the incubator. I'd hate to use something like a heat lamp. Not necessary and a fire danger. Check out my son's chicken coop. His video surveillance camera caught a chicken hitting the heat lamp and it goes out. Minutes later you see smoke. We were eating dinner in Eatonville, just a few miles away when someone called him and said his house was on fire. He lives on top a big hill and we could see the flames licking up 30 feet high. As we turned the corner to his place we realized it was the coop, not his house! What a night!

    Happy New Year to you too Mark. LOL, I am a total Party Pooper. I go to bed at 8:00. Got up at 3:00 to make the old man some sandwiches for the road. Tuna sandwiches of course!



    I'd like to get Barry, Mark, Brian (Acebird) and a few other Beesource regulars on the boat and take them out tuna fishing all day. I'd video everyone and post it as the
    "Beesource Reality show". Watch out Duck Dynasty... Bound to be hilarious. But Who gets the skipper hat, who gets the Gilligan hat, who is the professor and who is Marryanne?

    I GOT ONE!! I GOT ONE!! I GOT ONE!!!

    If you want to see a grown man giggle, sell him a big fat queen or let him hook a big fish in the ocean.

    Think about replacing lights for 500 storage bins with LED's. We know they will be stolen as fast as we put them in. That is what we are up against. Heck, they will probably steal the incandescent because they can't get them anymore. It might be cheaper to give each customer a free flash light and leave out the bulbs in the units.

    Mark, your wife won't give you a fish sandwich before you go to work?

    I assume you mean my photos. Photo bucket doesn't give the thumbnail option. Just a reduced photo or link you have to click on. I can stop posting photos if that's what you all want.

    R Lauri's photos too big for you to see? Thumb nails usually are too small for me to see details.

    I agree, the thumbnails are too small for me to see details too, although the large photos are kind of 'In your face'
    Unless I'm missing something at Photo Bucket for image options, this is what I use.

    I have 8 broiler houses with a total of 400 100 watt incadescent bulbs. They are on dimmers so as the birds age we can dim the lights . I have been buying up cases of bulbs for 50 cents per bulb the last year. A dimmable LED goes for around $25 each.

    Thanks Federal Government for looking out for me.

    Grrrrrrr!!! Mark, the instigator! "Who, me?!"

    I've learned, if someone opens that door even just a crack, it's like open season to some. Hence my post #3.

    Happy New Year! Didn't get enough sleep last night, but had fun playing cards with my neighbor and all their kids.
    Regards, Barry

    Yes, in your face pics that occupy a screen every time one scrolls through a thread

    In the task bar, there's an inset image icon.

    Hey it's your choice if you stop posting pics.

    I long ago realized there's not much I can do about the posts many of us endure. Often thought that a suspension of posting privileges would be beneficial to the quality of this forum.

    And it would be useless for heating purposes. Just switch to halogen but be careful because they are concentrated heat sources. Other options are floor mats that are designed for heat.

    Good find OT! They sell them on Ebay. If you buy from a domestic source they run around $12. If you buy directly from China they are around $7. I'm pretty sure, in either case, they all originally come from China.

    Yes, there's several different brands including the reputable company Reptile One, but one way or another pretty sure they all get made in China, maybe all brands come from the same factory, don't know.

    I've used them to incubate birds also, although incandescent work fine in that they generate heat, I've always thought it must be hard on the birds eyes. Although admittedly that's what most people do and the birds seem fine, I personally prefer not to have them under a bright light.
