Keeping new born chicks warm

low budget and easy way to keep new born chicks warm

Our new Eco-Glow chick brooder works great, but it needs some help on cold, wet mornings like today.

The above configuration is full of possible hazards, but not a terrible solution if you can control any possible delinquent cats that might be in the vicinity.

I was going to include a picture of the first new chick, but I guess he's camera shy.

A tornado was supposed to be heading our way last night, but we didn't see a thing. Heavy flooding, but that's pretty much normal around here. :-) Thanks for thinking of us!
