i have 8 chicks which are 15 days old today. I have been taking them out for a hew hours a day for about a week now. Yesterday I took them out when I left for work at 6am and put them in the run/coop area. Today I did the same but now i think am going to leave them out and see how it goes. The weather here in central Va has been unseasonably warm the last week and highs well into the 70's and lows in mid 50's are being predicted into next week. I placed there 250 watt heat lamp in the coop and secured it so they cannot knock it down or over. I plan to run this for them thorough the nights for the next couple weeks. Is this a bad idea or should they be fine..Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
