A: 5 1/2 inches.
A: Hello- I think the answer to your question would be based on what wattage bulb you want to use. All of the heat lamps sold at Home Depot are sold by size and maximum wattage. Personally I’m a fan of sizing up because You can always use a lower wattage bulb. Hope this helps
A: If you do a search for HD-303PDQ on Home Depot's website, you'll see the best option for a heat lamp. The model 303 is the best option for you. Thanks, Bayco Customer Service.
A: 75W its the most recommended
A: this might work fine - it is smaller than the one I needed and is for indoor use only so see if your coop is enclosed enough to meet that requirement. When I picked this up I saw other lights for warming pets/animals - best to see if you can get those.
A: For me, that would be a question for a County Extension Agent.
A: Since the wattage is less than the 75W rated wattage, you should be ok as long as the emitter you're using is about the same size as a standard light bulb (you don't want the emitter to be touching the sides of the shade). Thanks, Bayco Customer Service.
A: Let me start by asking 2 questions- Does the neck of the heat emitter get hot? If so how hot? The lamp holder is plastic and not porcelain so it might melt if emitter gets too hot. Second- I believe certain brands of these emitters are only UL certified if used with the appropriate holder and I don’t believe this clip light qualifies
A: THE SURROUND IS MADE OF ALUMINUM, IT WILL RESIT THE HEAT, BUT YOU HAVE TO CHECK THE BULK SOCKET, FOR THE HEAT RESISTANCE.
A: I think it should be
A: This product should be safe to use with 60w ceramic heat emitter.

A: Yes. Thanks, Bayco Customer Service.
A: Yes, the hood is removable...
A: Yes it should unscrew- I know the larger size unscrews
