So I have seperated our chicks & ducks and the chicks are now in a big tubberware tub! The lamp has a red (250W) Bulb in it. I have the lamp securley hanging above the box on one side. Thermometer is reading 90, but the chicks are acting like its too hot! They stay to the "shaded" side of the box and even lastnight I had a few chicks go to the cooler side of the box and lay down and spread their wings out like they were trying to cool themselves. Should I move the lamp up and keep the brooder temp lower. I dont know what to do..hhmmmm Wanted to add the ducklings have the exact same set-up and temp readings and they love cuddling each other under the lamp & on the shaded side!
