My 8 babies are just 3 weeks old today. The nights here in Dallas Tx are about 80. It's really hard in the late afternoon to keep the brooder under 95.
I put ice packs and ice in their water. I have a fan and a mister going. They seem to be really happy. I let them out in the yard in the evening if I work.
Morning and evening if I am at home.
when can I stop the chick starter? They gobble it up as fast as I can give it. I put it in feeder and sprinkle it in the brooder.
