    the chicks like a feather duster and they can stay huddled under the feathers to use each others body heat.

    Also, a hot water battle does really well when you think it’s too cool.

    I raised my chicks in a brooder in the house.

    If you'd update your profile to show location (at least the state or country) and tell us about your weather that would help provide an answer.

    i reason why i m asking this is because i m not able to raise chicks indoors and i dont have broody hen as well and plus not even able to use those electric brooder for chicks as there is no electricty availible nearby.

    I've had success using older chicks. 3 week old chicks, 2 3wk olds to 1 1day old. They all huddle as needed.
