    I have the 2 week olds in their brooder in the barn, under lights. When I went out there, there are gnats going to town around the lights.............should I be worried about these?

    well, I just went out there, and they seem to be having a blast chasing these little gnats.........will they get any sleep?

    Like human toddlers, they'll run about untill they pass out from the running, nod off, then wake to do it again. As long as they're the small gnats, they're chick fast-food no worries.
