Good morning! The chick is the same. I am getting with my vet on the older ones.
I was hoping to just put one of those heated pet pads in and steal the 100w bulb for my chicks from 1/21. Half are feathered and two are just missing a few neck/head feathers. Oh well two heat lamps in the house a few more days(cringe).
Sorry you had to put one down Sally sad.png

its ok, it goes with the territory.  I am used to having to do it, just not such a worthy chick is all

All but one?  IDK I only counted the pullet legbar the money makers, she wants everything I hatched, but I am pullin the blue silkie and the gold laced cochin banty for kiddo to keep with her polish chicks and maybe the lil friz serama chick.    I never count or keep track :hide  just what brings any cash

I've run rough service bulbs for years. Shouldn't be an issue.

Well I guess when you're supposed to be in the business of making money only counting the money makers makes sense.

The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

So, really, something like a 100gram jewelry scale is the only "true" way to judge. What I'm afraid of with AC is the 7 day lag between. For now, it seems aiming for 30% should keep things safe.

Picture of the bigger joint?

I think if you aim for the 30%-35% range you should be good. As long as you monitor the air cells when you candle.
