Ok, I am to the point that I need to put the ole light in the brooder. The opinions vary wildly about which light to use. I live close to Houston and we are going to order our day olds today. Their availability is 10-29-2008 from Ideal. Do I need a heat lamp? If so, what wattage?, Does the color matter, is there a preference among the chicken pros? One more thing, what are you guys putting on the brooder floors? We are getting 5 black sex links 5 brown sex links 5 gold sex links 5 red sex links Do any of yall have these "sex link" birds and what is yall opinions? I wanted different leghorns but the website says that their availability is 2009 Thank Yall for the advice givin so far and Thanks in advance for the further advice.
