We have 7 barred rock chicks that are 4 1/2 weeks old. We currently have them in a closet sized enclosure inside. Their heat lamp has been off for days as it's been hot here and the temps inside the house have been between 73⁰-77⁰F during the day and 68⁰-69⁰F at night. They have seemed content. I have a thermometer in their brooder room that I check regularly and lately has been between 70⁰-80⁰F depending on how hot it is outside.
I wanted to know if anyone can tell if I will be able to bring them out to their coop soon?
We will not be running power out to the coop so there will be no heat lamp.
Here is the forecast for my area so you have an idea of what overnight lows are looking like, etc.
And here are some pictures of the ladies, hanging out at 75⁰ F in the chicken closet!
They look pretty well feathered but still have a little bit of fluff left.
We are just about finished building their coop and are wondering if we will be able to bring them out to their new home when we're done?
Any advice is appreciated!!
Thank you :)
