They've all been introduced to the water and food and now it's nap time. Long and bumpy car ride home from the store has tired them out.
Baby Barred Rocks are home at last!

I'm thinking of switching to a regular bulb tomorrow when I can run to the store. This one is way too high a wattage anyway, luckily I have one of those light dimmer switches so it's not too hot for them.
Can anyone tell me how to know if the temperature is too low for them? I have a thermometer but it was a cheap one I got for less than a dollar and I don't really trust it much. I know when they're hot that they start panting, but I can't tell if they're just being weird babies and falling asleep on each other or if they're actually trying to huddle for warmth. Some of them were trying to crawl under the others, but it seemed like just something weird they were doing?
