Hi All. About to get chicks for the first time and our coop is located too far from the house to run electricity for heat (or anything) unless we have a perpetual, super long, extension cord running across the property which our dog would possibly chew through anyhow. Looking for suggestions from those who know. What are some good alternatives?? I'd Love to put a solar heat lamp out there but it doesn't seem they really exist (at least in an effective and affordable range). Anyone know of any, or a battery or other operated? Anyone dealt well with this same situation? Should we just keep the chicks inside in a box with a warming lamp until it warms up, etc, and if we do will they adjust o.k. later being placed in the coop? I sure would appreciate any suggestions, or advice. With Sincere thanks and appreciation!
