    Best wishes. You should have someone sneak some chicks in as "companion animals" during the healing process. Seriously who wouldn't buy that.

    Good wishes,Blooie!
    Need help guys - does anyone think the space under their mama heating pad feels a little too cold? In other words, when you stick your hand in the cave does it feel warm enough? The chicks just arrived and are huddled under the cave together chirping quietly, but when I put my hand under the cave it doesn't feel "hot" just "warm "(not even super warm ). They are being brooded in the coop,btw. I have a thermometer that I will try to get a reading on, but I'm not sure it works great. Maybe I'm just worrying too much? ?
