heat lamp times...

Last year, I raised and lowered the heat lamp -- lowered it for the evening, raised it for the morning. That was to accommodate our lower temps in the evening. Your chicks will pretty much tell you what they need but still best to use a themometer. Minimum of 95 degrees the first week, 90 second week, etc. You'll get the degree variations with the raising and lowering of the lamp.
I read the part on the raising chicks 101 that said if they huddle in the corners away from the light they are too hot, but they only do that when they're napping. When they're up and feeding they wander all over the place and never pant or anything. Should I move the light up anyway?
