I have 30! I'll tell DH you said I could get more!
I have 5-9 week olds completely off of lights under my front porch & it gets cold enough down there for their water to ice over. It's out of the wind but temps still get pretty low. Last year I was pitching 3-4 week olds out to the coops as soon as they feathered in. I'd be doing it this year too but since we moved over Christmas my grow out pen isn't back up yet. That's this week's project & then about 100 chicks are headed outside, ages 4-9 weeks.
None of mine ever have lamps & temps dropped into the 30's several times after they went out last year. As long as your coop is fairly draft free & you put out at least 5-6 at a time they can snuggle together for warmth.
Bring him with you when you come get your BR this weekend & swap him out for a pullet.
Not quite sure that will work. They always look for volunteers for 3rd.
Here's a nice reference chart I found....probably just good for us newbies.....
I can't put mine out in the coop until I get something to cover the leaky roof. Anyone in my area now where I can find some cheap (free would be nice) metal roofing. I priced it at Lowes,$31.00 a sheet. I almost swallowed my tongue. I need at least 4 sheets to cover their area. I've been watching CL but no luck. We had roll roofing on but the high winds shredded it off.
Spoken like a veteran enabler!!!
I am pleased to announce that I purchased Reyvaugh's LF Ameraucana. I know it is a bittersweet feeling for her. We are very excited, and thank her very much!
Congrats! Glad they are staying 'in the family' so to speak!! LOL
