I just got a good scare a few minutes ago. It has been very cold these last couple nights and usually we have a pretty stable power grit here, but suddenly my power went off for a couple of minutes. I have 3 older chicks in one brooder and 5 that just hatched a few days ago. They are in the garage to keep wind off them, but it is still cold enough in there that the water of the older guys got slushy on the end without a heat lamp. The older ones should be ok without power for a while, but the little ones I worry about. I was going to bring them inside first, but we are still working on this place so it's not insulated that well and it would get cold in here fast too. If it came down to it I would stick them in my shirt, I have done that with a snake(in a pillow case) I used to have and he survived a week long outage, but chicks are a lot messier and I really can not go to work covered in chicken poop. Any tips or tricks of how to keep babies warm without power?
