I live near Kansas City, Kansas and we were hit by a really bad storm last night. Apparrently it had 80 mph hurricane force winds, and one of my worst fears came true...we lost our power and I'm raising 4 day old chicks and the rest of my baby birds as well. Luckily, my house temp didn't dip below 74 degrees before the power came back on a few hours later, but I was woried SICK about my babies! I immediately covered my brooders up with bath towels and kept my bedroom door shut to keep the heat in. I also covered the window with a sheet to keep the draft down. I figured if it got any colder, or for much longer, I would've put the tiny ones into a small box and covered it, or tucked them into my shirt to keep them warm. Still, I dread losing power because I worry so much about my animals. What do you guys do if you lose power when you are raising chicks?
