    So far all the radiators are warm, the house has gone up a degree, and nothing has exploded.

    Life is good!

    It's been nearly 48 hours and the heat is still on.

    The only downside is that the utility porch has some light fumes. I had planned to put the brooder out there but with the fumes, the babies will live in the kitchen instead. Oh well. [​IMG]

    But my house is W-A-R-M!!! [​IMG]

    Yay! It must feel downright tropical to you right now in comparison to how it's been.

    Quote:Yeah, DBF is working on tightening up the connections to the flue & such. I just don't want to risk having the babies in there. Right now they're in a brooder in front of the fireplace in the LR. I love listening to their contented little peeps, pecking, & scratching. They've just started to "dust bathe", which is quite funny.

    Wow heat, finally. I bet you feel like your all it and then some. lol I would turn the heat up, take all my cloths off except maybe my socks and dance around the house just because I could. [​IMG] I know what you guys have gone through since we didn't have heat last winter. Heat-what a great invention. I'm really happy for you guys. Take care and enjoy!!!!!!![​IMG]
