They are 8 weeks old, they dont have curly tails and the ones I can hear have a raucious quack.  I was planning to eat the males and to keep the females.  Will update as soon as those tails curl.  Thanks for all the help

The heat lamp actually says "For all animals" and the sticker on it says maximum 250 watts. Can't see if there is anything written on the builb at the moment but as I said it is a builb designed for waterfowl so that if water gets splashed on it it doesn't explode.

The lamps I have are white ceramic things not really proper bulbs like the red ones you can get
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age
