    I've heard of people putting hot water in a plastic bottle then the bottle in a sock....so they can cozy up to something warm.

    Or place the brooder near a wood stove.

    Others will have more ideas

    Fill plastic bottles with hot water and surround them with the bottles. Cover the box/whatever to maintain temp.

    I used hot water in canning jars, in a cooler, ajar. It was toasty and perfect.

    hot water bottles nearby. Do you have a fireplace or woodstove? My greatgrandma put her eggs and chicks near or behind her stove. [​IMG]g
