I feel it is too close. How is it secured? Are they moving away from the heat?
Use a thermometer under the lamp to check temperatures. I personally never use a 250 watt bulb as they are much too hot. I use a 125 white light. To me it looks too close, but it can depend on your ambient temperatures.
They are not moving away but I will check temp
You are cooking them.
250watt bulb is for hearing big cooks with 10 foot ceiling.60,watt bulb is more than enough
Those chicks won't survive the night with that bulb
I brought it up a lot and brought it down
to right temp
250 watt was all they had
I'm telling you they are going to cook.unless you have that light 8 feet above broader.40 or 60 watt is plenty
Use a regular 60 watt light bulb.heat lamp bulbs are for cooking
Last week someone posted they were using 250watt bulb and all chicks died.
250watt light gets so hot chicks get delirious and can't move away from bulb.
