Hi everyone! I'm new to this board and a new chic mommy (I already have 2 layers). Decided to add 2 new hens, and thought, heck... why not get cute baby chicks. Anyway... reading online and getting conflicting stories about how much heat/light. These guys...eek... sorry... these GALS (knock on wood) were born last Tuesday so are what... 6 days old. I've got them in a rubbermaid with a 65w lightbulb & they seem perfectly comfortable. Now I'm wondering... how long do they need the light on 24/7? They're inside the house, so it's not going to get real cold - and I know the adults arent supposed to have light overnight or they wont sleep and can die?? Or is that a rumor. Anyway... I saw one thing that says: 1-7 days - light 24hrs/day 1wk-6wk - 8-10hrs/day or 12-13hrs/day, cutting back to 8-10 6-20 wks - 8-10hrs/day 20+wks - gradualling increase from 12 to 16hrs/day. I have no idea how reputable the site is though, and none of the "official" looking ones have any info about light, just heat. HELP? Thanks in advance. I know you guys will save the day.
