    Red discurages picking. They can't see any blood or red spots, every thing is red! Red is also easier on the eyes and calming! I use both but red first then white when I move them into a bigger brooder.

    Good luck and God Bless!

    I have ALWAYS used white and nothing else. they don't pick at one another, they sleep when tired and are awake when not tired.
