    So question:
    I have a 100w bulb in the heat lamp. Do you think that is hot enough?
    Thanks![​IMG]

    I wondered the same thing, so I put a thermometer underneath the lamp on the floor of the brooder and it was warm enough so I'm gonna use it. [​IMG]

    I don't have a thermometer yet.
    How far from the bottom is your light?

    Thanks for responding.
