What is the best red bulb for a quail broader?

Can anyone give me brand names and specifics? I have got to stop this pecking one way or another. It's crazy to have to have 3 different "brooders" for only 5 little quail chicks!

the smallest I coul find at t+s was 250w.Thats way too hot for a small brooder.My chicken and quail farm suppler uses regular bulbs,so do i.250 watt will heat about 250 chicks or so.Will cook chicks in small brooder

We use a 100 watt red incandescent flood light bulb. They're for outdoor lighting and should be able to find at any hardware store. Chick's seem to like it
