    Yay [​IMG] my chicks are finally about to hatch! And candling shows breathing.... But I was wondering about my brooder:

    It's getting warmer (85-90 daily) should I still have a full blast heat lamp? I was also wondering if anyone has tried using grass clippings as the bedding... it seems like a good idea and my older chicks love having a pile of it to peck on. [​IMG]
