So right. I have several aquariums and good tank heaters are very reliable and accurate. If I never need a brooder I will set one of mine up like this...love it... only draw back that I can see is that it is not very easily portable.....
Maybe setting it up in a small cooler with a handle would make it more portable
When I had to take chicks that I was handfeeding to the show with me I would just set the nestbox on the floorboard of my van between the seats... with a van the engine is right there and the floor is a perfect temperature. After some hundred miles even a little warm...then I would slide a beach towel underneat to insulate a little. Not rocket science but it worked
