Hi! I'm BrooketheChook and I recently babysat 8 new chicks for my sister. Some nights I would be up at night worrying about them and this site was my savior!!! I haven't had a pet in 10 years, and I started university as an adult student (a very stressed one). But, having the baby chicks around was a nice mental distraction...and I fell in love with one little girl (a black Silkie) who refuses to sit on my lap....instead she runs up to my chest and falls asleep there. So! I adopted two. I was concerned that my little black-boogey (aptly named as she 'smears' her little body across me) would get lonely. I recently bought a terrarium until they can be outside (as they are only 2 weeks old) and I am concerned about the heat of the ceramic part that the heat bulb screws into. The ceramic heats up until it is untouchable and I am concerned it will melt the wood veneer/laminate it sits against, that the terrarium is made of. Has anyone had any materials melt or catch fire before?
