    I'm so excited i accidentally broke the lamp on the out side of the tank :/ was freaking out BUT that has now given me the chance to get a new infra red lamp for my baby chicks :) I'm so happy that they now have this light they seem so much more comfy in the tank and sitting all fluffed up well not overly fluffy but they look fluffyier :) just happy that i feel that i have something good for them ...now a question the pet store person said to leave the light on 24/7 any suggestions on this is this a thing to do ???

    Make sure to get a red one, I had to switch to a white one for two days because my red one broke and the chickens did not like it at all. They hated that it was constantly bright and were more aggressive.
