Just received 27 McMurrays choice (beautifully healthy looking chicks) , One DOA'd on arrival, (expected considering the distance.) Day 3, a little RIR passed ( noticed it was sluggish). I have what I think is a healthy/roomy/ baby coop set up.. but have a question with regard to temperature. Here in the florida keys days are in the 80s, evening/nights 70s lately. I Have a large baby coop A frame within my large coop for 8 adult RIR. ( also a outdoor runs in a mangroves) In the chick coop.. Which is basically a raised "A" frame. One end with straw bedding/ red heat lamp, (18 inches high hanging) temp read 90 - 95 degrees directly under. I vented the other side with an 8x10( floor level) meshed window for them to cool down and look out at the Big girls running around below them and morning sunshine. I also placed the water on the cool side to gauge it's not overheating. ( temp there is usually 80- as I close it up at night). What is the ideal temp for the first week, and how, in a warm climate can one control overheating. The chicks seem fine, not over drinking.. but wondering if I should just time the light to turn off each morning or keep it on? I have 8 adult RIR running around under the baby coop within their really big coop. ( so they can see/hear and slowly know- newbies are in town- wink) Is that a bad idea?? The adults have no way of getting up close to the babies. I realize it's a balance, and as a newbie.. but I wonder if it's better to be a little cool vs too hot?? Thanks for any responses.
