I have 58 chicks and I Let them stay in my living room to prevent cold weather changes.We still build their chicken pen and it's not easy.I was wondering if my chicks need heat lamp 9 weeks old they still in the box separately.Need some info.Thanks
58 chicks in a living room! Unless there's some unusual circumstances (i.e. you live in extreme climates) they absolutely do not need heat at 9 weeks and frankly should be getting acclimated to the temps so you can move them outside.
Welcome to Backyard Chickens!We are glad you joined the flock! BYC is a helpful site providing all of the information you need to know about poultry! There is always space for more members on the BYC roost! They don't need a heat lamp at this stage. 58 chicks can be a handful to keep in the house. Hope you enjoy it here as much as we all do!
Do you have a coop to put them in? From your picture, it looks like your weather is pretty nice (at least you have green grass in your yard!) so I would guess it's probably ok. I know I'd be real ready to get that many chickens out of the house as soon as possible!
Hello and welcome to BYC! Glad you joined.
I would have to agree with @N F C . It looks warm enough where you are. I would get them out of the house ASAP.
The second picture you posted is an Easter egger cockerel on the left. In case you didn't know you've got at least one male on your hands.
Good luck with your flock!
