250W light/heat bulbs are on sale. But i think it would be to hot for my little banties. They are 4 months old but very small and it get pretty cold here. Is 250W to much? Thanks BYC!

It really depends on where your lamp is (type of brooder or coop) and the surrounding temps. I think I'd go with a smaller wattage bulb 100 or less simply placed a little lower. The lack of sale price can be made up with lower power costs.
