So I've been pasture brooding my broilers this fall, and with the exception of a few mistakes (moving them out two days too early... see my UGH post) it's going really well (well, that element is, I'm having other issues...). Up until now it's been really nice out, with the lowest temps in the 50's. But tonight is going to get into the upper 30's and I'm worried. Does anyone have any experience with tractoring broilers when the temp is that low? I'm not so worried about the older batch- they're four weeks old now. Should they be okay at that low of temps, or should I give them a heat lamp? The younger batch is 2 weeks old. They have shelter off the ground with pine bedding that is completely covered on three sides and above (it's an insulated plastic dog house) and a heat lamp. I've checked on them on the cooler nights and they seem okay, but will they be okay at that low of temps? Should I set up a second heat lamp? Moving them inside really isn't an option, I don't have anywhere to put that many, but I could confine them to their little shelter for the night. I would appreciate advice from others who have had broilers outside at this temp! I know I moved my spring broilers outside with NO heat at 3 weeks and it was still really cold out (cold enough that my spoiled layers who were in the nice cozy coop still had a heat lamp), but of course I can't remember HOW cold it was. I really should write these things down! Thanks in advance!
