The chick brooder temp this week is supposed to be 85F. Maintaining proper heat was no problem the first weeks because the day temp highs were in the high 40's and low 50's. Today the high temp actually reached 61F!! My brooder is in the garage and it has been a terrible day to maintain the 85F. At night the temp drops to freezing, so the brooder temp is around 80F in the am. But...today it went to 100F as the sun heated the garage and the chicks were crammed at the far end of the brooder. I managed to get the temp back to 85F, but it is a real hassle juggling the temp during freezing nights and "heat wave" days! I had to constantly watch the temp all day trying to maintain the correct temp. When I am done writing this I am going back to garage and see if I need to raise/lower the heat bulb (250-watt red). Anyone else have problems maintaining a fairly steady temp?
