It's 11:40, it is 60 degrees outside and I just went out to check on the Littles. Over on my home thread - my new home thread that is - they are fussing a little bit about the MHP, so I just had to check. Not a sound from the room with the brooder. When I got light into brooder, one chick popped its head out to look at me. I put an instant read thermometer under the heating pad (right between the pad and the wire rack) and it is holding 100 degrees. I can't get a good reading at the sleeping level because there are chicks everywhere under there. They all woke up and decided that the light means eat and drink time, so I had all 15 Littles out grabbing a midnight snack. I put my hand in the brooder and my little buddies crawled up on my hand. They are warm to the touch, so definitely warm under there. Happy little guys, peep peep as they eat. Hopefully they go right back to sleep. I will be out to check on them first thing in the morning.
