In the Brooder
- Mar 22, 2014
So I purchased some chickens from a local farm store and later found out we can't have chickens in our city. So I built a coop and they are 6wks old now and I have them in my garage. I shut the heat lamp off when the temp gets above 65 degrees in there, so my question is will they be fine without much sunlight in there. I live in southern MN so it's getting warmer here but I'm kind of laying low until I hear if we get this ordinance passed, it going through the city council as we speak but I want the chicks to be fine and how long can I keep them in there without letting them outside. I'm just staying positive because my kids are in love with them. I did speak with my neighbors and they seem fine with it. My coop is 4by6 so they have room right now but just not sure if I need to get them outside. Thanks in advance for your replies!!
