Question for everyone. I just picked up a farm innovators heated chicken mat the other day at TSC. I was curious if that would be warm enough to keep chicks warm in the brooder in place of a heat lamp? I will have a heat lamp on them during the day but at night, I'd like to turn it off, mostly cover the brooder and use the mat instead, only because it's going to be in our bedroom and hubby has a hard time sleeping at night with a light on. Thoughts? I've never used one before and have no clue how warm they actualy get.
I do not think so.
Go to a pet store and get a ceramic bulb--like they use for reptile.
It will not burn out as fast and does not put out light.
Consider a premier1 brooder plate. They now have a very small one--three sizes up to big enough for, I think, 50 chicks!
I "think" Elvis is a White Rock. Not a Plymouth Barred Rock, although there will be one in the picture I am showing...dohhhh. But it is the white bird who is the father, Brutus is the Barred Rock, he is pretty useless. None of the girls like him, it is as if they have labeled him "creepy". :) Elvis was a warmer chick from a hatchery because last years shipment was shipped in really cold weather so they added 9 extra birds for warmth. 6 of them were like Elvis. I asked on here and the consensus was he was a White Rock but after looking at pics now that he is older, he resembles a White Leghorn as well. He has a lot of brown on his hackle that overlays his white but you can't see that in the pics. He and the Dark Cornish make really pretty birds.
Picture of my small flock. Elvis is the only white bird, he is on the top left. Brutus the Barred Rock on the right has his back to the pic. Facing the wrong way, that is a metaphor for his life. lol
A little bit better look at Elvis's face. You can see the Dark Cornish too. I have really grown to love the DC birds which is probably why I favor their stock. :)
