Hello! I'm a newbie to BYC and I'll be a new chicken mommy this week! I'm so excited about my new fluffer n' honeys! I'll be getting 15 silkies (I caught their magic spell!) I'm setting up my brooder and I bought a 150 w reptile basking spot lamp bulb (then later see in tiny print it provides uva rays). It seemed VERY bright and lit the entire brooder up; however, got the heat to 95 degrees (I'm using a 45 gallon Rubbermaid). I've read everywhere that one should use a red bulb, but some people I spoke to personally said the red makes them lethargic and regular light is better. Would this type of bulb be harmful to the chicks due to it being for reptiles, uva rays and a strong basking light (I read a lot of people also use reptile lights as well, I'm just afraid of standard bulbs due to fire risks) they will be in my garage and I live in California, so the weather is nice. Any help is much appreciated as they will be here Thursday or Friday.
