how to get more reds and yellow out of a incandescent light bulb


I'm using very bright incandescent lights through chickens lamps to increase my metabolism. The reds and yellows that come out of incandescent bulbs do this. My question is how can I increase the production of reds and yellows? Is there anyway I could change the wiring in the chicken lamp to force it to produce more reds? I heard that putting a 130 volt bulb in a 120 watt socket will produce more reds? Any other ideas of mods I could do to the lamp? I was also wondering if red heat lamps produce more reds and yellows then regular incandescent light bulbs or do red heat light bulbs just have red coated paint which makes them appear like their producing more red?

This increase is for you or for chickens?

thank you joecaption but it says that they are specially made to filter out the dull yellow rays? How is this better then original incandescents?

If you want a true natural light that almost the same as sun light it's the way to go.

Plant grow lights. Or in the dimmer recesses of the inter-webs, "grow" lights.

Seriously though. What you need to tell us is if you are battling SADS in which case you are mostly looking for more lumens generally. Or if you are trying to make up for something like a vitamin D deficiency, in which case you want full spectrum. But supplement tablets are cheaper...
