    I just realized I ordered 41 chicks, plus they throw in that "exotic" chick for free plus I figure on a couple extras in case of death. I'm going to have 45+ chicks the first of May. :/

    I had 15 RIRs about eight yrs ago. I put a heat lamp above their water dish to keep it thawed out and they all laid straight through winter. I almost put a light on these but figured it might burn them out quicker, plus they hadn't started laying yet until after winter hit. I'm still getting eggs with no light.

    I started getting a few eggs right on the day of the equinox, then the cold plunge and the light has really upped the count. The egg I am trying to hatch was just put in the 'bater to see if the roo was mature enough to produce.

    Hi buddy [​IMG]

    My brooder heat lamp has been rigged to my telescoping clothes steamer pole. Sweet...easy to adjust. I have an indoor/outdoor temp gadget with a wire dangling into the brooder to masure 95 degrees at chick level. Now all I need is the chick. [​IMG]
