I am in the Bahamas and my wife complains about my baby chicks in the den or garage. Can I put one week old chicks in my outside brooder with lamp with night temps of 70-75? I made a raised, enclosed wooden box, with some pine shavings on floor and hanging heat lamp. Roofed etc.
Like a small rabbit hutch. I usually move them there outside once they feather but I am just wondering if it would be ok to move them after 1 week. I hatch every month almost. I already have a few older (4 weeks) chicks in the outside brooder, they huddle here and there, I figured this would help too, with keeping them warm. I checked at night and inside the box feels pleasantly warm, I have a temp gauge under the lamp its about 90-95 under the lamp at night.
