In the Brooder

What are the rules of thumb to weaning chicks off the heat lamp? I have them in my furnace room with a 250 red bulb. They are 17 days old now and doing great.
Your temp is fine and you are doing it right by backing the lamp up as time goes by ....The temperature is reading 78 degrees f. I have been moving the lamp higher as they are growing. Today I turned the lamp off for several hours.
