First of all, I'm living in a small neighborhood in East Africa. It ranges from 68-82 degrees outside all the time (even at night), but I am looking for a way to warm my chicks up a little bit. All the places I looked online said "buy a red lightbulb" or "put them next to a woodstove," but I don't have access to either of those things here. I have a lamp and a regular lightbulb, but our power goes out frequently, and I'm looking for a way to keep the chicks warm just in case that happens and I don't wake up to catch it. Second, I had two baby chicks last week, and today I have just one. I think one might've been carried off by a cat, or just escaped and disappeared. Either way, my remaining chick is very lonely. For the time being I have put a mirror in it's pen and am holding it whenever I can, but am hoping to go to the hatchery in the morning to get some new babies. I'm thinking about getting more than just one this time, in case one of them doesn't make it. My questions are as follows: 1. I've read that you should have an even number of chicks. Does that mean I should get 2 new ones, or three (to bring my total to four)? 2. What is the best way to introduce new chicks to the one I have? It hasn't shown any signs of agression toward the mirror chick, if that helps. They're napping together now.
