First let me say that I am not trying to get into a debate on ANY safety or environmental views. This is just simply a question. Okay so I was watching this show last night that was explaining the pros and cons of the fluorescent light bulb versus the incandescent light bulbs and how by 2014 all incandescent light bulbs will be completely phased out of our country. So this got me to thinking about brooders. Heat lamps are just high powered incandescent bulbs right? Please correct me if I am wrong. What on earth is everyone going to use in their brooders to keep the babies warm? Give each chick it's own candle? lol I know there is a simple answer but I guess I am just not up on light bulb technology. At one point in history people raised baby chicks when tons of farms had no electricity. Such as my grandmother. Too bad she is no longer with us or I would just ask her how she kept them all warm. Just looking for a bit of enlightenment.
