My four chicks are now 5 weeks old. They're in the house with no heat lamp (the bulb died, but they look and act completely comfortable). They're in a brooder box they've outgrown. I'd like to move them out onto the sun porch, in a much larger area, WITH a heat lamp. The problem is that it's still supposed to get down into the mid-20s over the next several nights. If I put them in the corner of the sun porch, they'll be surrounded (on two sides) by the house. I'm guessing the ambient temperature in that corner is at least 10 degrees warmer than outside. Plus they'll have a heat lamp pointed at them (which I can put very close to them). Do you think they'll be warm enough? Or should I keep the stinky, overcrowded brats in the house for another week?? If it's too cold now, how warm is "warm enough?" Thank for your advice. Michelle p.s.--I won't be ordering chicks in February again!
