My brooder light is hanging about a foot and a half from the top of the 2ft high brooder, and I was wondering when I should turn it off all together... they sleep under it right now, kind of... one or two chicks will roost either on the waterer or on the floor around it, and the others just kind of scatter everywhere... Also, can someone explain how much light they should be getting at this point? I'm a little confused... I've heard something about increasing the light they receive weekly, and at the moment I leave the light in the room off, the brooder light on, and the window has no covering on it so they get natural light from about 6-9pm everyday (so long as its not raining!). Can someone clear up the lighting situation, etc. I'm probably going to put my ceiling light in the office (where they are staying) on a timer.
