I have 7, 4 week old chicks. Can I put them outside during the day with a heat lamp? Today it is 51 and sunny. Supposed to go up a couple more degrees. They will be in an all wire cage, with a 250 watt. red heat lamp. I want them to get some sun, and be able to run around and eat grass. At night they will go back into the brooder in the garage.

Quote:Okay. This is the latest I have ever raised chicks. I just got addicted to hatching this year.
Last night it was freezing, so I had to lower the heat lamp, and put some plastic around the brooder. burrr.
