Normally there are no power cuts in my area, but recently there have been about 4 in the last month due to a fire in the building that supplies my small town with electricity. If the power goes off during the day that’s okay, I know ways to keep the chicks warm. But I’m so scared it’ll go off while I’m sleeping, and I’ll wake up to 8 dead chicks. The brooder is going to be a very large dog crate in the greenhouse, with a sheet over it at night to keep our draughty. We are using an “electric hen” rather than a heat lamp. Does anyone have any ideas or advice at all? My burglar alarm will go off when the power comes back on but not when it goes off, so I’m scared if it goes off for like an hour I won’t know until after. Any advice would be appreciated.
