Well I just read some scary stories about the red lights. My brooder is in my home and I no longer feel comfortable (after just 1-1/2 days) using the red 250 Watt light in the brooding lamp. I am going to put the chicks under a lamp that hangs over the kitchen table which uses a white household 100W and make a decision tomorrow on what to use. What is the purpose of the RED light? I read its to keep chicks from pecking eachothers eyes out?? Please advise....anyone???
