12 day old chicks

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I brought these 5 babies home at 3 days and they have been in a tote in my bedroom since then. Now they are 12 days  old and they are hard to get any sleep around. I have set up an old plastic water trough in the garage with a heat lamp. The bottom has bedding pellets covered with paper towels. The food and water are on the end away from the heat lamp. The whole thing is covered by a sheet of Styrofoam insulation. Our nights are getting down into the high 20s and low 30s right now. Days in the 40s to 50s. Do you think they will be ok out there? Or should I give them more time in the  house till they are more feathered out? 

 

Thanks for any help here.

It sounds like they will be just fine. You have a very good setup for them.  Hope I helped!!
