    Poor babies, its a good thing my brooder is so big it takes two lights to keep the entire brooder warm enough.

    So I was walking by the brooder room and I glanced in, didn't think much of it. I got part way down the hall when it dawned on me that something didn't look right. I go back and realize that only the red light was on. I go in and the poor things are all huddled under the red light. That will teach me to buy the cheapest bulbs I could find.

    I have a friend who is raising some chicks and one of her white heating lamps completely shattered! (it was one of the cheap ones too) [​IMG]

    Whatever price range you buy them in, it is always a good idea to have backups. I'm super paranoid like that, but it has saved me a lot of trouble in the past. Best wishes,
