So... I got my 4 new baby chicks today, yay! Last year, my first flock, I used a heat lamp, so they were well-lit all day and night.
This year, I am using an Eco-Glow. I have them in our garage, in a dog crate covered with a sheet to keep out any slight drafts. The temp in the garage right now is a little over 60, which it should stay at all night.
My question is.... should there be some sort of light on in there during the night in case they need to get water or food? Or will they be good until morning? They're probably only 1 day old, and they did eat throughout the afternoon and evening today, but I didn't know if they needed access at night, at least at the beginning.
Thanks in advance!
