I was just going to ask about the heat light thing.
Out here, in hickville, many people hatch chicken eggs. They "brood" the babies under a "brooding" light. Usually a 250 watt that is hung 3 feet over the floor. But maybe it is only for night, as it is usually done in a chicken coop (a small barn for chickens).
I nearly choked on my coffee when you said you had them set up in rubbermades. Like Linds said, "you know your a herper when".
