Infrared Light and Heating Bulbs

  • Infrared Heat Bulbs (white light) are used for chicks whilst they are still young and in their first few weeks of life
  • Once chicks reach approximately 3-4 weeks (guide only), the bulb should be changed to the Infrared Light Bulb as they supply less heat (required at this stage in their life)
  • Infrared lamps (red light as opposed to white light) do not interrupt chicks sleeping. Red lamps also help reduce chickens pecking each other
