I have a run set up as a brooder room. In the shelter part it is mostly closed off and I have an old comforter up up to shield from the wind. Part of it is partionioned off and I put a couple of heat lamps for the chickens. They go out 2 days after hatching. I've had the best luck with them that way and lose less that way.
Where do you find 100 watt light bulbs? I've looked everywhere and can only find 72 watt.
Sorry you lost all the New Years hatch eggs. But so glad to have you joining us for the January hatch.
I can still find 75 and 100w incandescent bulbs at smaller hardwarestores...ACE, DIY, and mom and pop stores.
Mine uses 60w candelabra base bulbs.
