Another Heat Option

Now I remember! OldGal and I raised a lone baby duck once, and I've been racking my brain as to how we kept him warm. We used a reptile "hot" rock.

You can find them at most pet stores. Their available in all sizes, they don't get "burning" hot, and they don't use a lot of electricity. Another plus, since there's no light they give a normal day/night cycle.

Wow, what a great idea! I wished I had known about this thing a few years back. I had a sick Lovebird that needed extra heat and at the time I was out of all brooder lamp bulbs and being in such a remote area of NM, I had to order them. I used a heating pad that I had to turn on every 2 hours as they have them set now to turn off after 2 hours! This thing would have really kept her warm on the bottom of her cage.

I have to get me one of these. Thanks for sharing!

Great idea there. I used a heating pad turned on low and wrapped in a towel when mine were small.
