I'm expecting my 20 chicks next week, so I've been checking the temps in my plastic tote brooder. The 250 watt was way too hot. 120 degrees. I don't want fried chicken! Back to the store & finally found a 90 watt red light. Temp was a steady 100 degrees in the middle, 80 degrees on the sides. Is 80 degrees too cool on sides? I can put a heat lamp on the end if needed. Thanks in advance!
