So we had a power outage yesterday. It started at 4.30AM according to my neighbor and the power didn't make it back on until 9PM at night... It was until almost 7 that the poor 2 week old chicks were without heat (they live in our basement, the ambient temperature hovers around 12-14C down there). We found them huddled into a ball, moved them upstairs in Tupperware and stoked the fire as soon as we could. They all survived the day, and seemed to be ok this morning... So here is my questions: 1. Should we give them sugar in their water to help them? 2. We use non-medicated feed as we want to live antibiotic free, is there any natural supplements we can use instead? 3. Any other suggestions? Here are the chickies enjoying their warm, albeit small, accommodations... And our 'guardian' dog making sure they don't run away!
