Yes it is! I have mine in a brooder outside in my coop with a Mama heat pad(Temps:lows upper 20's high's 50's right now). I make sure they're good to go with food and fresh water every morning, before I go to work. I'm gone about 12 hrs and peak in on them when I get home. I usually get them on a Friday afternoon, so I can keep an eye on them over the weekend. Checking for pasty butt and just making sure they're all doing good. It's not my first time with chicks/chickens. Also my chickens don't hate me for doing this and are friendly!Is it possible to raise chicks while at work all day?
