I feel like I'm making far too many threads but i have a lot of questions So, anyway, I have some three week old chicks living under a lamp right now but they are quickly becoming too big for their box. I was wondering when is the earliest time they can safely live outside [with shelter of course] and what types of bedding/insulation I could use to keep them warmer during the night. It is summer so it's nice and warm outside most days but it hasn't warmed up much during the night yet. I don't really have enough room for a larger box inside, and I don't have any available power outside to have a lamp in their outside home, but I can find a way to do this if it's absolutely necessary. I'd thought of maybe having them outside during the day and bringing them in at night. at the moment, because of the constant light on them from the lamp they don't really sleep at night time, just randomly through the day and evening, but i suppose they can still sleep outside during the day and get used to sleeping in the dark at night. So basically, When can baby chicks go outside in a run safely? What types of bedding can i use to keep them the warmest? Are there any ways i can modify a run to keep it warmer?
