    Depends on how you want to brood them. The days are getting colder, not warmer - so chicks need to be brooded longer than they are in the spring. I brood year round, but do much smaller batches in the fall.

    If you are willing to try to acclimate them to the cold, go for it. They should acclimate slowly though, so as to not shock their systems.
