    I have thought about that and have not tried it yet BUT perhaps a Couple kerosene lamps could be used to heat the space. I would have to provide more ventilation but it would be worth a shot in an emergency.

    Wonderful idea for a brooder. The blocks hold the heat without risk of fire. Now the only thing stopping me from brooding outside is the occasional loss of electricity we experience.
