My babies arnt tollerating heat very well. They are 6 days old, and this mornng I cought them panting when the light was where it has been sence they got here (about 2.5feet above them, 250w bulb). So I raised the lamp about 2 inches. They seemed fine, then a few hrs later, they were huddeling in the corner where the light is dimmer. I watched them for a little then placed a news paper over half of the box so they could excape the heat if they wanted. They have been hiding under the paper all afternoon, and my husband went over there (I took a nap) and they just seemed hot. Not playing, just crouching under the paper. He said he moved the lamp off them and they have been playing and moving again. When I woke up I moved the lamp up another 12 inches. Now the light is so weak I can barely feel heat. 6 days just seems to early to remove them lamp, but they arnt tollerating it. It has been 60 outside with sun, and that has heated the house to 73ish. The house is normally 71 with the furnace, so not a huge difference. What do you think?
