In the Brooder
- May 3, 2020
I currently have 11 chickens that are about 7 weeks old, they are outside in the coop doing well. I also have 18 chicks that are only 2 weeks old in a brooder. Because it’s been so warm here, they haven’t even needed the heat lamp. So my question is, when should I put the younger chicks with the older ones? I think they’d be happier outside because the garage gets so hot, but not sure how they’d handle the change in temperature at nights and if the older chicks would be nice to them.
