    Getting 25 Cornish X in April. Was wondering if one 250w heat lamp in the brooder would be alright?
    Thanks

    Yes it'll be more then enough, watch to make sure they don't get too hot, typically I use a 150w red bulb but tractor supply was selling two red bulbs 250w for $8 and the 150w was $15 at petsmart.
