Can you keep them outside in the coop with 2 heat lamps? They are about little less then a month old
How secure is your coop?
What size is it, how many birds do you have, and what is your climate like?
it's very secure its sectioned off from the other chickens in the coop and its cold was thinking two heat lamps could keep them warm if they get cold
I live in ny
I would think that with a heat lamp they could be outside...but only you can decide that.
Many man chicks are hatched outdoors in a coop year round.
I have brooded many outdoors. Even when in single digit temperatures outside.
A good coop with no drafts. 2 heat lamps. One where it stays around 80 degrees and one where it stays about 70, and then as long as its big enough they can also get away from the lights. Thats how i do it!
Mine have always done great brooded in the coop. And they feather in faster
Oh and make sure the heat lamps are very very secure!!
