My light broke and I can't get another until the morning. How can I keep the chicks warm ? They just hatch today right now they are back in the incubator.

turn the bator down to about 90, they will be ok in there till morning. make sure you get a couple heat lights when you go. if you have to give them water just try to do it fast they will be ok for a few.

Do you have ANY lamps in your home - you can rig a temporary setup with anything that will hold/power a bulb

I was using a desk lamp for a temp setup and it started smoking and stopped working even with a new bulb. I found a heating pad. Another trip to tractor supply I hope they have one they didnt have a water thing today.
