I'm looking for some reassurance or advice!! I picked up my chicks today, so of course it's going to drop down to 3 tonight (36 F). I've read lots about the MHP but I couldn't seem to find anything about indicators that would let you know it was enough heat for the chicks (peeping?). I'm guessing everything's fine, but I'm in first-timers mode and am worrying about it My concerns: How do I know the MHP is warm enough for the chicks? Here's my set up: Piece of old fence with two heating pads to cover. One is a seed mat, the other is the large sunbeam, both will give continuous heat. Sweater on top with some press and seal for easier clean up. The whole thing is inside a large box Brooder is located in our large (unheated) shop There are 36 chicks Pictures: Thanks!
