Our chicks are 42 days old today. Currently we have them in our house in a large dog crate that has been modified with chicken wire to suit their needs. They have been doing well without a heat lamp during the day and we've been having the lamp off at night for a few nights and all is well. We have a wood shed attached to our home. Would it be too soon for the chicks to move into the wood shed, still in the crate (since I would trust them to wander around free in the shed... to many places to get trapped), with the heat lamp on a timer for nighttime use (or we can use it all the time too)? My reason for asking is they are getting bigger and the smell is getting worse, even though I change their bedding and clean the crate every other day. Unfortunately it's not been warm enough here to have the windows open consistently, air flow would help a lot I think. Anyway, lately the average low is in the 30's and the highs around 60 during the day, but we would definitely use the heat lamp at night. I do believe the chicks are fully feathered, I haven't noticed any fluff floating around in a long while and they are losing small feathers here and there. Would it be okay to move them, or is it too soon?
