    I have 10 chickens from Meyer Hatchery, part of an assortment. They are 9 weeks old. I do not know the breeds that I have. After checking their website to see possibilities......I think it is a Blue Laced Red Wyandotte. Can you confirm or identify the breed? Also, it it a roo or pullet? I suspect I have a roo. Thanks for the help!

    I think there is a chance that it is a roo but if you can take a quick picture out of the red light it would be easier to tell breed and gender

    At 9 weeks of age the bird certainly is not in need of any supplemental heat such as what may very well be being provided by the red light shown in this photo. Please take photos that do not have the distortion caused by that light so that we can clearly see the bird. This will be needed to identify both breed and gender

    Will get new pics tomorrow. Thanks for the help. I just recently moved them from the house to the coop. It was 20ish last night with a high of 38 today. I didn't want to rapidly move from house temps to freezing outside. Only using it on the really cold evenings, nights. Was told to avoid a rapid switch from house temps to freezing. Is it okay to completely remove the light, no matter the temp?

    If they are fully feathered, yes, you can remove the light. I always slowly take the temp down while they are in brooder, so by the time I move them out, they have been without heat for a while.
