Brooder-heat-lamp-alternative, chick brooder heat lamp alternative here are a few of the options i found (the rent-a-coop listing is an accessory for their 10″x10″ heater because they did not have one of their heaters listed on amazon): i, however, did not want to spend that much because i wasn’t sure if i would be raising chicks again.. Understanding behavior, traditional heat lamps, and the radiant heat alternative one of the biggest concerns most people have is keeping the brooder at the proper temperature. you’ve probably read the norm… 95 degrees the first week, then lower the temperature by 5 degrees each week until the chicks are fully feathered., line a pan with foil and preheat broiler. lay out the asparagus in a row on the lined pan and sprinkle with olive oil first, then sea salt. broil for 7-9 minutes, very close to the broiler coil. remove asparagus and turn over and broil for another 3-5 minutes (time depends on thickness of the stalks).
