    I totally understand your pain! I have 8 chicks that desided tonight would be a great night to not sleep. I think I am going to buy some earplugs tomorrow.

    Totally...This is my first experience with this many...my DH thinks I've gone over the deep end. It's just a good thing I suffer from insomnia, I guess. [​IMG]

    Try using a red bulb if they are old enough. I got two 100 watt ones from the pet supply. they were much quieter then when I switched from white during the day to red at night. It also helps to establish their future habits of rest and play. hope this helps. jean Ps: my hb thinks I have gone off the deep end too.
