Kid warmer: A 55 gallon FOOD GRADE plastic barrel. Cut a hole the diameter of a heat lamp in the top lid leaving enough to run 4 screws through the rim of the metal lampshade into the top of the barrel. Be sure the bulb won't be touching the plastic. Put a square of chicken wire under the bulb just in case it burst the screen would catch parts. Cut a door with a jigsaw. Secure to stall wall, add straw and babies. It also casts a nice glow for doing barn checks at night.

If you ever get chickens, PLEASE, for the love of chicken happiness, get them a big 'ol tire, too. Apparently our chickens have a timeshare arrangement with this thing. Each gets to spend roughly 30 minutes a day alone in it, then it's the next lady's turn. Because, darkness. And quiet. And spiders. They never lay eggs in it, that's a big no-no between them. Gladys once laid an egg in the tire and was banned for life. You gotta respect the chicken rules, Gladys.
