I've got the red heat lamp for my brooder and have spent about 1/2 a day trying to adjust it to get the temp correct for my 2-day old chicks. Where I initially had placed it turned out to be +120* !!! Quick! Move it up 2". Now it's 80*. Move it down an inch. Now it's 100* Move it up 1/2" . Now it's 80* again ?!? Finally got it to where it says it's 90*, but I'm not sure I believe the thermometer anymore. Chicks are somewhat huddled, but they're also sleeping. Man, being a chicken Mama is work. Sure hope I can find some Silkies to do this for me next year.
