Hi. I am having some ridiculous brooder temp issues. I have a thermometer in there, chick level - so I can know how hot it is where they actually are. Now, for my issue: My brooder is custom built out from pine. It is solid wood on 3 sides, the front is plexi-glass and the roof is two doors with the galvanized fence. 2' x 3'. I have a 250w red heat lamp suspended over one side of it. The brooder is in my garage, and I live in Westchester and it has been in the mid-80s lately. The bottom is lined with contact paper and I have a thick layer of pine shavings on the bottom. Now that I have bored you with my details... I have the heat lamp up pretty high and it is still ranges 93-104 degrees in the brooder around mid-day. If I unplug it completely, or even if I leave it on over night, we dip down to 84-88 degrees. Any advice on how I can get the temperature more regulated? Or am I just an idiot Thanks for all of your help and advice. I know they huddle under it if cold, and away if hot - but I would like to just get it more regulated if possible.
