I know this forum is for chickens but I figured y'all would be good to ask I'm getting a shipment of ducklings the first week of Dec and I need to set up my brooder. My current ducks were 2 weeks old when I got them and it was the middle of summer and 90 degrees was the low. Totally different ball game now! Anyway I was looking at brooder lamps and the ones at TSC and Walmart are all the same and seem super flimsy and frankly scare me. I was thinking of going with the reptile ones that are a bit heavier but it's 5 1/2 inches in diameter. Will that make a difference? I picked up a 75w infrared bulb on clearance at pet smart to go in it. It's only 4 ducklings and they are going in a large kiddy pool. Honestly I don't see the lamp getting much after these guys. Maybe 3 chicks in the spring and that's about all the room we have. Any input would be great.
