In the Brooder
- Aug 6, 2016
I have several chicks that arrived a week ago. It has been very hot where we are. I am keeping them in a garage. Maintaining the 95 degrees has been no problem / no heat lamps needed. I am aware I am supposed to lower the temperature for the chicks as the weeks progress but I am not sure I can do that with this hot weather which is forecasted to continue a few more weeks. What is the best practice regarding the temperature when brooding in the heat of summer please? What if I do not lower the temperature 5 degrees each week?
