We have four silkie babies that are a day old, but the broody hen seems to be pecking them a lot and throwing them out from under her. Stupid us didn't have a brooder ready because we thought mama would take care of them, and if not her, than our other broody, but that doesn't appear to be the case. I've called all three of our local feed stores and they are all out of brooder lamps!!! Is there any kind of alternative that I can rig up in the interim? I don't even have a bendy desk lamp that I can put one of those bathroom warming bulbs in. We have all normal table lamps around here and I'm fairly certain my electric blanket is shot. Last year we put the brooder beside our radiators in the house and put a heavy quilt over it and they were great, we've sinced move though and no longer have that option Thank you for any ideas!
