Hello everyone, I have a quick question. It is supposed to be in the 70's here Friday (YAY) I was thinking about letting the chicks out for about half hour in the sun. Their brooder is 82 right now. Think that would be ok?
It is in the high 70's here and I took my 6 day old chicks out today for the first time. They were in a small pen situated in a sunny spot and I shaded a section of it with a box top. Interestingly enough even though the temp is cooler than in the brooder they seemed to prefer the shady side. They were perfectly content, noone complained a bit about the temp. It is so much fun to watch them, be sure to take your camera out too for lots of pics!
