    We just moved our 2.5 week old chicks from in the house to the cold garage. It's still quite cold here 34 degrees at night. We have a eco glo heat source- will the chicks be fine over night or do I need to bring them in?

    Hello from Kansas, debgoody, and [​IMG]! Happy you joined our flock! You can shrink down the area of their brooder to help contain some of the heat. Perhaps put a "ceiling" over part of it as well. Just make sure everything flammable is safely out of the danger zone and your chicks can move into and out of the heat. Here's a link that contains articles about raising baby chicks: https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-and-raising-chicks
    Best wishes and thanks for joining BYC!! [​IMG]

    As long as you provide a proper heat source, they should be fine. After all, it won't be 34F under the heat source.

    G’Day from down under debgoody [​IMG] Welcome!

    As you have already received a link to a good forum on which to ask your question, I will just wish you all the best.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
