Wish me luck on this latest adventure. I bought twenty with the hopes that they all live to a ripe old age of 8 weeks. Any advice is welcomed. I have them on chick starter and already made the appointment at Harringtons for processing. They all are eating and drinking well and acting like normal chicks. I'm wondering how long they need the heat lamp on them. They are in my barn in a kennel for now, we are building them an outside enclosure in the garden so they can poop all they want. I was just wondering how long until I can move them out there. They will be protected from wind and rain, but at what age are they safe from getting chilled?
