Sleepy there are some folks on here that are hatch-a-holics. They got the space and the ways to do it so there is no frostbit feet, and losses to cold temps. But I will tell you that I personally follow traditional times for bringing up chicks. And that is in the spring. I brood in a car garage that has insulation...but it's not in the house. Temps in the garage have ranged from 40's-70's but under a brooder lamp my chicks have flourished. And by the time they are feathered out the grass is green and the bugs are jumping and they are off learning everything there is to learn about being a chicken. I like spring. The Wild turkeys, the wild ducks and geese like spring...so I just follow their lead.
Hey; I like spring too!
