This low wattage light should be used to attract baby chicks to a heating element, feed, or water.
Our universal box brooder (shown below in relate products) has a socket specially designed for this bulb.
Please note that this bulb is not a heat source in itself. If you plan to build your own home brooder, you will also need to purchase a brooder heater like those listed below in the related products section
Red lights have been used for years and are still preferred by some breeders. We also offer blue lights which have become even more popular than the red. And, low intensity white light is also popular because it has been shown to increase food conversion and does not cause added risk for pecking.
It's hard to go wrong no matter what color you chose. It really comes down to personal preference more than anything else.
Like you, we decided that the benefits of raising chickens and eating fresh eggs are too good to pass up.
DIY Chicken Coops is family owned, which means we get to play by our own rules and focus on our customers.
