Larry in Hawaii

We ordered 15 long horns and 15 black rocks from Murray McMurray and they arrived the other day. We are keeping a dozen and selling the others to friends. We are keeping all of them under light for now and wondered how long I need to do that. We live in Hawaii and our area is warm (low 80's) during the day and low 70's at night. I have been told to start decreasing the light so they will feather out faster.

They gave us one free hen and I am not sure what breed she is..cute. All light brown with a wide wide black stripe down the back of her head and back to the tail.

You can start decreasing light at about two weeks. I take mine off of heat at a month old if it is warm outside. Since I live in Louisiana they do rather well that way. In the winter I wait until they are fully feathered
