Re: Cold weather blues

I looked into ceramic bulbs before. I think I found that they can't be used in the cold temperatures I have in my building.

Re: Thermostat plug

The thermocube is preset to turn off at 45 degrees. I don't think that would be warm enough for my Seramas. I don't have a panel heater. I am using a 250 watt heat lamp.

Thermostat plug

I saw this online and wondered if it could be used for a heat lamp. It looks like you can only order it online, or get it with a panel heater. Has anyone tried using one of these?

Re: Cold weather blues

Today the temperature is near 0 but it's really windy - windchill about -3. Here's how the Serama boys in the barn are doing.

Cranberry Squares

I made this recipe today for the first time. I really like it. Instead of putting in 1/2 cup of raisins and 1/2 cup of coconut I put in 1 cup of flaked coconut. It's quite tasty and chewy. The icing is a thin layer. IMG_1265.JPG From Company’s Coming 150 Delicious Squares Cranberry Squares Bottom La...

Re: Rude Kijiji ad?

I think people who aren't interested in buying something in an ad should not reply and keep their thoughts and opinions to themselves. If they are actually negotiating with the seller the comments made are between them.

Re: More Serama Eggs

No hatching for now. I didn't plan to have 7 adults in the house, so I have no room to set up a brooder.
