    I have 2 week old serama chicks and some 2 week old quail chicks, and I (due to other animals I have) have one room in my house that stays a constant 84 degrees. Am I okay for them to be in here without a lamp due to the heat?
    no one huddles together, so temperature wise they SEEM to be okay.
    I planned on just keeping an eye out to see how they do i case I need to put the lamp back on...any input?

    84 seems more than good to me. Are you going to be able to lower the temp as they age?
