Baby chicks


They will need the light until they are fully featherd.

Start at 95 F and go down 5 degrees a week, and once your down to 75-ish F you can start

turning out the lamp in daylight hours and leaving it on at night. Usually at 6 weeks old they

will be ready for the coop. If it's chilly were you live (shouldn't be in late may!), even once they

are in the coop you may want to keep the lamp in there for another week or two so it won't be

such a sudden change on them.
