We have our first flock (23 birds), and I'm just not confident that they are happy with the temperature in their brooder. We are using a large rectangle box as a brooder (in our guest bathroom) with a 250w heat lamp suspended over one side. I have a thermometer at chick-level under the lamp to read the temp. The chicks are just over one week old and for the last few days they have been huddling on the far side of the box (away from the lamp... the "cool" side). I raised the lamp a bit (the thermometer was reading 95*F) and have continually raised it until they stopped escaping the lamp. The temp is now reading 82*F. Is this warm enough? They all seem happy and active, but they still seem to think it's a little warm under the light. Is it okay to follow their lead with the temperature, or should I stay "by the book" for brooder temps?
