    40 Watt?

    Raise it higher?

    What are you doing, a brooder I would guess?

    Can you raise the lamp, get it further away from the chicks?

    Can you switch to a 45 watt bulb?

    Increase the distance from the bulb to the floor of the brooder until the thermometer reads 95 degrees F.
