I got a new order of chicks yesterday, some EE, dominique, black australorps, gold laced wyandottes, had them setup in the brooder with a light.. was laid down in my bed with my 8mo old to get him to sleep and hurt some loud chirping. My husband bets this is caused by my 3yr old son, and goes out to check. 5min later I go out near them to see the freaking light had fallen down on top of some of them!! I'm going *$&$ I thought you checked on them! But no, he saw my son on the couch and got distracted by the tv. omg I just about killed him. 5 chicks were trapped underneath with a 100watt ceramic bulb, you could smell singed fluff, and 1 was trapped with the light edge right on his neck. The poor things were panting. I about cried. My husband took 3 to the fridge trying to cool them down. I grabbed a bag of frozen peas and held them right above that - let me say that that worked really well. Got them all cooled down so they weren't panting. They seem to all be fine today. but geeeeez, I could hear that something with up with my chicks, they were chirping loudly. Nobody else seems to get that if they are loud, its for a reason, so nobody checked them and wouldn't have until I said something. Needless to say I've got the light double hooked.
