Can anyone help me out? I have 11 day old chicks and I am not sure if I should keep the heat lamp on them at all times?? We are having 85-97 degree days here and the nights are reaching about 70 - they are inside in my porch and not exposed to the outside at all - we turned the heat light off of them today during daylight for about an hour and they slept the whole time....but now tonight I just tried to turn the light off and they started chirping VERY loudly -I think they are afraid of the dark???! Is that possible?? Do they still need light at all times if the teperature is staying steady at 85 plus? I tried to just put a night light out in the porch for them and even that seemed too dark for them....any suggestions at all??? And does anyone know the amounts of time they need light at this age, is it 24/7? and when it can change and to what?? Thank you in advance for your help!!! Sorry for all the questions - first time chicken mommy here!!!
