Hi everyone! I have a question about the body temperature for very young chicks. I just picked up my order of 12 standard chicks this morning from Meyer Hatchery, and have them set up in a brooder in my sunroom. We are running a space heater in the room to keep it around 55 - 65 degrees, and then we have a 250 watt bulb, set to 90 degrees with a thermostat, running over the brooder. It's doing its job nicely and keeping air temps on one side of the brooder right around 90 degrees, with the other half of the brooder gradually getting cooler away from the bulb. I have an infrared thermometer (the kind with a red laser pointer, that you point at an object and it gives you the surface temps), and I was measuring the chicks' temps, and was surprised to find them anywhere from 88 to 110 degrees depending on where the chick was hanging out. Have any of you done something similar before, and is this kind of range normal? I'm mostly concerned about them overheating somehow - they WILL move away from the hottest part of the brooder if they need to, right? Thanks for any reassurance or info! I just love my little chicks, they are so cute.
