I'm new at raising chicks. I have 3 week old chicks in a brooder in the chicken coop. I'm wondering when I can stop using the red light heat source. It's warm outside (85 or higher), and when I use the light it gets too hot. I was thinking to just turn the light off and keep the 3 week old chicks in the coop. Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated.
