Well, we set up our brooder today to practice getting the temperature right, but...the heat lamp's been on since noon, and the thermometer refuses to read 95 degrees unless we direct all the light into the brooder with tin foil and cover the rest of the brooder with blankets! The bulb is 125w, and our brooder is made out of wood, with hardware cloth on top. The brooder is 44X40X17. We haven't put bedding in the brooder yet will that keep it warmer? We don't get our chicks until next week, but we want to be able to see them (and allow them to breathe and make sure it has enough ventilation to avoid a making a rainforest). Do we need a bigger bulb? Is there another way to keep it warmer in the brooder? Thank you!
