so what temp should my brooder be?
90 when they first hatch.
Take away 5 degrees each week.
Id add that the 90 degrees be measured at a height equal to the chicks' back.
95 right under the heat lamp for the first week, big enough brooder box that they can get away from the heat if needed. 5 degrees less each week there after. Water and feed should be kept away from the heat.
The above will give you most of the information you'll need to prepare for raising baby chicks. That's where I found all the information I needed a few months before I got my ten chicks at the feed store.
Brooder temp? Depends on how old.
