The only thing accessible is the 35 watt bulb, but wouldn't have to be red shaded like the lamp?
Well, I've never managed to scorch anything with a bulb under 100 watts (not that I've tried very hard), while I've achieved that many times by accident with 250-watt heat lamps.
I doubt you'll find that a 45-watt bulb has much potential for drama.
So you're saying the 45 watt is okay? And how about the red part?
As long as it kicks out enough heat to keep those little ones warmed at about 85*, it should be fine.
Okay, so it just has to keep them warm. I still don't understand the red part, but it seems okay temporarily, right?
The red light is thought to help reduce their pecking at each other.
So, that means they'll start pecking? Without the red light?
I've never had an issue with chicks pecking each other badly, but I also always make sure my chicks have ample room.
Thanks for all the answers. Lucky for me, someone is able to watch them for me. I'll keep you guys updated if something changes.
Does anyone know if I can bring the chicks with me? And then back?
