    Hello guys, I want to get some day old old English chicks tomorrow but since we still are in cold weather season I'm wondering if I should get them, I do have brooder with a heat lamp so they will not be out side? What do y'all think?

    They will need some heat for a couple of weeks at least. I have three brooders going right now! They'll be fine!

    Okay I'm think I'm going to get so by the time spring gets here the chicks should have some feathers and be ready to go outside

    If you have a chance to get some nice chicks now- I would get them. As the temps. warm up, it gets harder to find quality chicks, because everybody starts buying chicks when the weather gets warmer.
