If you cant provide that with the space heater you will need to find another solution
My Ameraucana keep peeping loudly. What can I do?
Use the space heater for now. Loud peeping is what they do when they're freezing
Oh and my space heater will automatically shut off when is hot enough.
Will my Buff Orpington adopt the 2 baby chicks? I've never seen or know if she's a broody hen or not but I don't have a heat lamp or heat mat and only win blanket to cover the brooder and a space heater that can reach to 85 degrees. I have a coop and she always sleep in the laying box.
How big is the brooder? What does it look like? Can you move it to a small room where you can use the space heater to heat the entire room to 85 degrees?
No, the hen will not adopt the chicks. She doesn't sound broody.
Here is the brooder size. I think I need a bigger one. I have a lot of boxes and should I get a box with more length/width then height? Right now they both are active dude to my space heater being 85 degrees and they didn't peep too loud anymore. Any suggestion? Should I move it into my bedroom or I have 2 empty bedrooms upstairs. Should I put them there?
Space heater isn't enough. It needs to be radiating heat not blowing I would think. But that's just my opinion not fact based. I use the ecoglow20 and a space heater in the garage to heat up the Temps in the garage if it gets cold. The last few night Temps got down to 35 (killing off my beautiful zucchini plants :/) so I use the space heater at night only with the ecoglow
Hmm... I don't know what I should do next. :/ My hens aren't broody. Any suggestions?
They need heat at 90/95 the first week than 5 degrees less every week there after till fully feathered by 6 weeks give or take.
