I'm having a very hard time telling if i have the temperature right in my brooder. We have a 150 watt red bulb in a heat lamp (all the store had). The brooder is about 18" tall and i had the heat lamp placed directly on the wire lid. The room they are in is about 74-75 degrees F. The chicks were all sprawled out under the lamp with their wings held away but not panting. I then took the lamp away to get ready to clean out the brooder a bit and they all perked up immediately. I have no idea if this means the brooder temp is too hot or just right. I thought if it was too hot theyd move away. But if thats so then why are they holding their wings out? Thanks in advance for you alls help!
