    During the hot summer months many people have chicks die from suffocation and ammonia gas from improper ventilation. This time of year you have no need to worry about the warmth of baby chicks. So replace heat lamps with ordinary 100 watt light bulbs.

    Unless you're in Seattle where it's a blistering 60 degrees and cloudy today.... Can't believe I had to leave the heat lamp on all day today, so depressing!

    But thank you for the advice, these are good things to keep in mind for those that are actually experiencing a summer [​IMG]
