Keeping chicks warm without electricity

Chick swapping on a Sunday afternoon

Today we swapped some homegrown chicks with our friend Sarah for some of her mail order hybrid chicks.

Anna put 2 firewall bricks in the toaster oven on high for an hour, and then wrapped a towel around the bricks to keep everybody warm for the trip.

The bricks were still warm to the touch 4 hours later and all chicks are safe and happy in their new home.
