I have chicks coming in April and I am considering options for our brooder. I have decided I really don't want a heat lamp. I want a heating plate like Eco glow or premier1 brooder. I have also seen the mama heating pad mentioned a lot. Right now we may use a kiddie pool to start inside. Would the mama heating pad setup work in this ? Do you need to cover it in straw or wood shavings? Would it be a fire hazard In a kiddie pool ? If you start with this method inside can you move it outside after?
