In the Brooder
- Jun 14, 2010
I am new to chickens. My baby chicks will be 4 weeks old this weds. I am finishing up my coop and run this weekend. I would like to let them stay out during the day and bring them in at night. I am in Orlando and the heat index today is 103-105. Their area is under 2 huge oak trees near a lake. The last 2 days I have taken them out to their run and sat with them for 2 hours, today it is just tooooo hot. Should I bring them in during the hottest part of the day. They are getting so big and need to come out of their brooder and they are smelling up my office.
