6 Years
Apr 15, 2013
Hi folks, Im a new member to the sight. I have 5 new babies,well their 3 weeks old now, hatched on Good Friday. Anyway, my question is they have alot of feathers, not alot on the top of their necks or legs, but I was wondering if I could start turning off the light at night? They are still in my house.
are you asking if you can turn a heat lamp off, or just a light when it gets dark out? Is it warm enough in your area so the chickens don't need extra heat?
Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan :D

Chicks need supplemental heat in cool weather until they are fully feathered at around 6 weeks of age. Check in the Learning Center for a guide to raising chicks.
