    Make sure one side [f the Ecoglow is pushed against the brooder wall. Give plenty of room behind the Ecoglow as well. I had quite a scare this morning. My chick's are two weeks old. This morning I heard a chick screaming loud, I came running and found her wedged between the brooder wall and the Ecoglow! THANK GOD I was home to get her out!

    I made sure that mine is pulled out from the walls. The chicks can walk all around the Ecoglow with ease. :)

    Glad you were home for your chickie!

    Thank you! I'm so glad I was there too! I never even thought that could happen! I pushed it tight to the brooder wall so it did not get a gap like before. Poor little baby. It scared her but she should be ok. I love them all so much I couldn't bare the thought of loosing one! I'm going to be worried the whole time I'm gone from home now! :/
