Hi everyone- My husband and I recently bought a small farm (32 acres) in Ohio. He was raised in the country and I wasn't. So I am learning everything I can, I am a reader and studier, so it's been fun. We got 10 chicks last week and have been keeping them in a big container (I think you call that a brooder, but not sure...hahaha) with heat lamp the past week. It was really cold in Ohio, so we actually brought the brooder in our mud room (don't laugh)....I was worried about the little buggers freezing out there. What low temp is ok to move them outside still in the container with the heat lamp? Also, how long do they need the heat lamp? When can they go in our little free range pen (with elec fence to keep out coyotes and stuff) and be ok? We want to feed them organic and not sure why to buy the next bag of feed for that? Or if they are free range do we not feed them a lot extra??? DUH ! Is there a good book someone can recommend that will answer a lot of my questions...because I have way more !!! Thanks everyone - I really am learning a lot from this forum and the web - I really appreciate the help to a total novice !!!
