So do you just shut it off, or wean them off by having it off during the day, and on at night for a few days. My chicks are , wow, 8 weeks and fully feathered. I don't know why they still have a light and arn't out side, but?? I want to put them out, but was thinking that maybe I should get them used to not having the light at night for a week, not just shut off the light and put them out all at once. I know its 100 degrees out and they don't need a light, but, its cool in my basement, and they peep like their being killed when I try to shut it off.
