My chicks will be two weeks old on Wednesday. It's 80 degrees on our screened porch where my chicks are living. I stopped using a daytime heat lamp after the first couple of days. Tonight I cut the apron strings completely. No more night light. I just checked on them and they are sleeping comfortably; spread out all around the brooder. I can't believe that I'm considering moving them to the coop with the big birds this week. They are all already jumping in and out of their wading pool brooder. The easter eggers aka demon seeds are going past that and jumping up on the edge of the draft guard (18" high)! Boy the difference in brooding chicks in April and brooding them in June is amazing. One of the silkie chicks is lagging behind. He's getting his feathers, but much slower and he's very small compared to the others, including the other silkie. I believe this is 1. because he's a better quality silkie and 2. he's a little roo (I'm 99% positive). Still, he's not having any trouble holding his own with the larger chicks. He eats well and his crop is full at night. He has a little love affair going on with one of the speckled sussex pullets and sticks close by her side. Can I go ahead and move him with the rest? I want to avoid the issue of re-introducing him later, if at all possible.
