    My newest batch of chicks will be 5 days old on Sunday and it's suppose to be 90 degrees that day.
    They have been staying in a room (in the outdoor coop) with a heat lamp at night. I'm concerned about them getting too hot during the day with these high temperatures. Should I keep them inside our house
    when it's super sunny and hot outside? I don't want them to get toooo hot!
