We have 6 chicks that are now 8 weeks old. We've been moving the heat lamp away each week and it's just within 10-15deg of the outside air temp outside and within 5 deg of the basement temp. The lamp is on 24/7 when do you start to turn it off at night and only have it on during the day? I've not ready any guidelines on this issue I might be over thinking it but don't want to cause the chicks problems if they still need the warmth at night still.
