    [​IMG][/IMG][​IMG]Anyone ever used a heat mat for lizards for a chick? I have a week and a half of sebright chick that seems to be cold. I have a heat lamp on her (I hope it's a her) but that doesn't seem to be doing the job. I currently have her on a heating pad and she is in heaven and the quietest she has been all morning! That's why I was thinking of doing a heat mat....

    That sounds just Wonderfull !!! go for it / whatever makes the chicks happy .
    I would use mine for chicks and young goats if i could find it ......... bought another one but someone stole it in the store /Jeffers/(believe it or not !!!) they were having a big sale that day .

    Let us know how she does please .

    Best to You and chicks ,
