It is night 4 with our first 5 chicks ever. I'm trying to "follow chick behavior" regarding brooder temp. The heat source is higher (a little over 100 degrees), but the company said that if ambient temp was going to drop overnight that it was ok to have it a little high before I went to bed. I checked the far corner of the brooder at it's about 80-82 degrees. Here's where I'm confused: "They" say that if your heat source is too hot, the chicks will move away from the heat source. They are in the brooder corner as far from the heat source as possible. BUT, they also said that if your chicks are cold, they'll be all huddled together. That is also the case. So, they are far away from the heat source all huddled together asleep. (They are also under the nipple waterer, so there might be some that might be cooling them while they huddle.) Am I trying too hard to read into this? Are they just being quirky? Is there any harm that could be done to them with those temps? Thanks!
