    So I haven't really found much information about raising baby chicks outside in a barn area in a brooder. I know they need to be 95 the first day and be reduced 5* each week, but I'm in Texas and we have 105*+ days outside and I am about to order a batch of 25 day old chicks but not sure if that is going to be ok. We have fans that keep it cooler, but I'm not sure exactly what the temp is. Any advice? I honestly am not sure where we would put them inside our house.

    I think you could do it get a few thermometers and put them around and make sure to doesnÂ’t get to hot
