Hi all, I'm new to this was wondering if this type of heat lamp is suitable for week old chicks? https://www.aquabirdpetcentre.com.au/co ... -lamp-100w

I'm planning on fitting it to a portable spotlight base which I'll clamp to the side of the brooder box.

Thanks in advance.

Andrew.

Andrew, look instead for a black light heat lamp, or a heat plate with adjustable-height legs.
The chicks need to sleep at night.
Cheers

What Redlander said. Infra red is better than the torture of a bright-light heat lamp 24/7. But black ceramic globe is better again. As is the mother chook type of plate.
