    oooh
    yeah that is not a good feeling. Are you brooding them inside or in an outside brooder? You'll have to race to the store now. [​IMG]

    DooBoo - I have had great success with red colored 100 watt outdoor flood lights. Should be all over town for Christmas, I got mine at Ace Hardware. Don't forget, the chicks will be just fine for a day or two in the incubator.
