    I am not a happy person. This morning while I and family were groc shopping, someone turned off my girls heater.
    It was Cold in there. There eggs froze, going to use them for scrambled. Had to look that one up on the net. Just have to thaw out first.
    Was suggested to take shell off, put them in a Baggie and set in hot water or let hot water run over them.
    I am happy now, gave them some dried meal worms and food. Turned on the heater and cleaned them up. They were making happy noises :)

    It was too much electric plugged in, happened again when I was out there.

    But I do have a burn hole where someone burned the hen house all the way through the wood.

    These people that do something like this are Sick. We do have a bunch of meth heads

    And drunks here. Meth is very bad.

    But my girls are in the house now in a very large tub, to stay warm. :)

    If you are tripping your GFCI then you need to investigate that. There is a reason and it could be serious.

    For example, one time a metal wire that I was using to hang a heat lamp contacted one of my plugs that was halfway plugged in. It was enough to trip the GFCI. It took me awhile to find the reason.

    If it is the heater itself then I would NOT use that heater. I would find another heater that does not trip the GFCI.
