Hey all. I am VERY new at this and have four 5-day old chicks living in a brooder (plastic storage bin) on my kitchen table . Everywhere I've read says that my brooder should be at around 95 degrees. I have two thermometers in there to check for accuracy so I think I've got it heated correctly, BUT every time I get the heat to over 90 degrees, the chicks run for the corners. It seems to me that they prefer 87-88 degrees. Will they be fine if I keep it there? They seem much happier at that temp. Secondly, this red 250 watt bulb (aside from casting an eerie glow out into my neighborhood at night) seems like a horrible way to sleep. The birds didn't actually go to sleep for the night like I thought they might once it was dark...but heck, with that bright light, I couldn't sleep either. Am I supposed to be making the brooder dark at night somehow? I'm afraid to cover even half of it with a blanket due to fire safety! Thanks...I'm sure this is the first of many questions I'm going to have but I am so excited to raise these chickens!
