So my 30 day old chicks come this week and I'm getting all the finishing touches done right now. We use solar, and a small amount of it. There is no extra electricity to waste so I'm wondering what everyone would suggest to use for brooding. No propane or kerosene heaters, or broody hens either. I've heard rocks, water bottle and extra beddings. But are any of these tried and true? Has anyone used any of these as an alternative? Extra information. We live in West Texas, our days are over 95 degrees right now.
