The power went out early this morning and I have month old chicks in a brooder in the garage and three day old chicks in a brooder in the house. This was the best idea I could come up with considering what I had available. The newly hatched - The older chicks - There's all kind of reasons why this wouldn't be a good idea for a long period of time. Number one been, these were all scented candles and all were a different scent. If the cold didn't get them, the smell would! I'm not kidding, either. I know scented candles will kill parrot and I have a headache, but it got us by for a few hours. (Note to self... buy unscented candles, prefarably soy with cloth wicks) Really made me appreciate what some of our members have gone through this winter with the power off for days at a time. I was just thankful I didn't have eggs in the incubator yet. Jody'e eggs should be here today or tomorrow. Yea!!
