    hello, hope everyone is staying warm. I need ideas. I will have ALOT of chicks by the end of this month and am trying to figure out brooder situation well ahead. I have a nice brooder that is 2'x8' that I hang headlamps from, it is in our unseated shop. I live in northern Idaho and am really worried of having a power outage and not knowing it or it just being to cold all together out there. I was thinking of setting up something in my laundry room (very small room) but worried about heat lamp in the house. What would be the best way to go about this? Thank you :)
