    I was wondering do I need to have a light on at all time si have been keeping a red light on at night but do I need it in there and on?

    How old are the chicks? Once they are feathered out and can keep warm you wouldn't want to have a light on them at night unless it got quite cold.

    Eliminate the light. It's now an unnecessary expense.

    Oh no light needed then. Save some electricity. [​IMG]
