    I made a stupid mistake, and am wondering how best to go about this now.

    To clarify some things, the little chicks will be indoors; our house usually ranges from 65-80, as we use wood heat, and will be for the first few weeks of the chick's lives. We really only need something to add a few degrees.

    I misunderstood the purpose of it; I understand now that the high setting is too hot for little peeps, but I'm wondering if, because our house is fairly warm, the low setting (which is okay to the touch, at least to my hand) would be okay.

    Perhaps it could be wrapped in a towel? I know it's not the ideal heater, and have considered returning it, but I feel that would be unwise, as the winters get so cold here. I think it would be a good thing to keep for later.

    Is there any way to use it? Or am I going to HAVE to buy a different heating mechanism?

    Thank you so much.
