Hi all - I have my 4 wk old chicks in 169 gal stock tank in unheated enclosed sunroom with two 250 watt red heat bulbs on them. One of the bulbs burned out last night at 670 hours despite the box saying it should have lasted an average of 6000. In a few wks when the girls are fully feathered, I plan to move out to 12' x 12' Noble horse stall with event front I'm turning into chicken condo. I planned to continue with the red heat bulb but after looking at the ShoptheCoop site here, I saw the Infrared Heat Bulbs offered in 100/150/250 watts that they say last 2 yrs. http://www.shopthecoop.com/id87.html Does anyone have experience with the Infrared Heat Bulbs vs the Red Heat Bulbs? Recommendations and/or suggestions greatly appreciated. I'm in Olympia, WA - Western WA with night time temps down to 32' lately with a snow storm last Sunday.
