Long story: My husband went in to the hospital a few days back and is going to have surgery. I have to go downstate to stay at my mother's until the 2nd week in June. When my husband gets out of the hospital, he will stay at my mother's until he's deemed fit ready to drive and do heavy lifting. Dilemma: I need some way to heat a brooder for 6 chicks that are approx. 2 weeks old for a 3 hour car ride. I can probably put them on the passenger seat and crank the heat, but I would like something more direct for them and comfortable for me, my daughter and the dog. Is there an electric adapter that I can plug the light in to and then into the cigarette lighter (or charger or whatever it's called)? I have also thought about getting a hot water bottle. I do have an electric heating pad, but the problem is where to plug it in. Need help! And I should probably fix my signature, but I'm not exactly sure what breed these are.
