    I have about 60 chicks, they'll be 5 weeks old tomorrow. I built one of those hover brooders to keep them warm when it's really cold. Well, I noticed that they had unscrewed one of the lights underneather the brooder. HOW DO THEY DO THAT?

    Yesterday, I noticed that they had unscrewed one of the plugs in the electrical box that holds the lights. Anyway, I don't know what happened to her,

    I'm worried that I sqished her this morning when I was fixing the light. It's hard to see what's happening behind it. She was a little speckled sussex. I'm very sad [​IMG]
