    Lost power yesterday....but not for long...............reminded me why I had told myself " NO WINTER HATCHES"
    But couldn't stand it and have one bator full and more eggs coming this week.
    Has anyone had experience with using hand warmers for such emergencies?????
    I cannot think of a reason not to for the short term.but have not seen anything written about this
    so decided I better check.

    I've actually used those long lasting hand warmers to transport baby chicks in the winter-worked great, I didn't lose one.
    Those danged hand warmers are good for a lot of things!
