Where to get brooder lights now that you can't find incandescent bulbs anymore? Ideas?

    We are incubating our own eggs (Hens are doing some too!). We went looking for bulbs and can't find them anywhere now that the ban on incandesents are in effect? Anyone have any ideas?

    This time of year, you should be able to find 250-watt white and red heat bulbs at Tractor Supply and local feed stores. For lower-wattage red heat bulbs, I went to Petco. They had a variety in the reptile section (50, 75, 100, 125-watt).
