    In Strombergs 2011 catalog there are blue brooder/pilot lights being sold as the most popular lights in recent years. This is the first I've heard of using blue lights in the brooder. Can anyone enlighten me? [​IMG]

    At what temperatures do you need a light?

    I'm just wondering what's the purpose of a 'blue' light in a brooder.

    I think that is for people who use brooder heating elements.... Like those Brinsea Ecoglow. It will attract them to the heat... That is only if they are in a BIG area and don't notice the location of the heat... Not that important really... [​IMG]

    same as a red light. its easier on the chick's eyes, because its darker, yet it still gives out the appropriate heat.
