    How old are the chicks? This will play into how warm they need to be kept and what alternative methods might be appropriate. What is the current ambient temperature where they are being kept?

    Are you familiar with the long-term alternative care that needs to be provided to prevent the excessive growth and weight gain that these birds will experience if not managed for longevity?
