Hey, so my chicks are at 2 weeks old and the brooder is set up in my house by the window. They have a heating plate in the brooder, brooder is actually a coop with windows on all 3 sides with wire mesh so they do have a good air circulation. We keep it 77 at the house. My question is if I open a window at night about an inch crack and it’s 68 outside, will it be too cold for baby chicks in the brooder that is next to the window ? Or it doesn’t matter since they have a heating plate inside the coop the coop area will remain at that temperature? I just want to get some fresh air in the house at night.
