Hi! I searched for tips on this topic, but nothing specific to my situation popped up. I will be brooding only three or four chicks come March. I'm in Mississippi, where temps are usually in the 60s at that time of year, but I will be keeping my babies indoors. I have seen various information about heat lamps...such as what bulbs to use, and what wattage. Some people swear you can us a low wattage bulb, others say you MUST get a 250 watt infrared heat bulb. Does it really matter, as long as the interior temp of the brooder is correct? It seems like a 250 watt heat bulb will be too much for this climate, not to mention more expensive to run. And, is red better than white for the chicks internal clocks? I'm not sure how that works...but it seems like keeping a white bulb on them at night might screw them up somehow. haha. Forgive my ignorance. I am new to all this! Thanks for any tips or hints.
