    ...when the incandescent lights go off the market soon. Will we still be able to buy the heat lamps? What do you plan to use in your homemade brooders then?

    If I couldn't get a heat lamp bulb I would buy a ceramic heater that screws into the current heat lamp fixture I already have and use Led bulb/s for light if needed.

    I intend to buy a case of the 125w brooder bulbs and at least a dozen 250w IR bulbs. By the time I've worked my way through those I'll have come up with something I like.

    I want both heat AND light.
