    Hi and :welcome from Ohio. So glad you joined. If that is their source of heat, than yes you must leave it on. Chicks should be kept at 90-95 degrees then drop down 5 degrees per week until fully feather. :thumbsup

    Hello and :welcome

    Yes, the light should be left on all night until the chicks grow their own feathers to keep warm.
    Enjoy the site. :)

    Yes, leave it on. That is the only way they can stay warm.
