So I got chicks on Saturday and just assumed I would be able to regulate the temp just by adjusting the light. Well that worked out about as well as trying to fill a collander with water.If it wasn't dangerously low it was way to high. So as soon as I got up on Sunday I took off to town with my dad to look for a thermostat. I went to Bucheits, Orshlens, TSC and came up with nothing.So finally I went to petco as a last resort because I know they charge an arm and a leg for everything and there in one corner was a Zilla brand thermostat with no tag or anything.I assume that it can't be more than the $40 dollars that I had so I go ahead and check out. She tells me its $50I can't get it so now I'm freaking out wondering if for the next eight weeks if I will have to have them in my room or something. Thankfully my dad just picks it up and says it's ok I'll get it I need my eggs. I am 20 years old and my father just had to buy my chickies a thermostat! So now they are doing great with the thermostat and are all happy chickies. I was just wondering if there was anything I missed or is that just about the only thermostat I could buy? Surely there are cheaper ones somewhere! What did you guys pay for your thermostats? Sorry for the long rant I just could not believe that it cost $50 dollars.
