    My power just went off the company said they are working on a new line and it will be off for a few hours. My 9 B O's are 2 weeks and 2 days old. They are inside and its about 73. Will they be ok or should I take them somewhere I can get power? These are my first chickens and I just want them to be ok. Thanks for any input.

    Probably okay, but have that backup plan ready! Can you add warm water bottles and insulate around the brooder to trap the heat? Mary
