I am worried that this year will be a cookie cutter event from last year which means COLD!!!!!!!!!! We had almost 2 feet of snow here, and we never get that by Puget Sound. I have never seen it snow like that before...and with the funky summer etc I can only imagine that this winter will be intersting as well. So, we have the brooder lamp, with the red bulb, to keep the babies warm when they are in the brooder. We used it last year for our two adult hens to keep warm cos it was sooooooo unseasonably cold!! It hit in the low teens and with only the two of them, we were scared that they would not be able to keep warm. (we lost most of our flock over the last 16 months due to heart issues etc ) Now, that type of brooder light... does it keep them awake? Its a red light so it shouldnt bother them at night right? We were wanting to aim it at the waterer <galvanized> to keep it from freezing this winter, and not on the birds since we have the new babies ...they huddle together so not worried about keeping them warm. But if it is going to disrupt their sleeping we might need to find a diff idea...I really dont want to be adding light etc and messing them up. Thanks!
