This is my idea, please let me know what works best: We are switching our two week olds to the coop today, sectioning it off into a 16 sq ft section. Will have 3" of shavings, draft-free, natural light. For the heat, I have a light-free chick warmer on one end and a 100w or 60w ceramic emitter bulb (no light) on the other end. (Just have to see which one gives me the right temp. Then, there is a ceiling light, not directly overhead of the brooder area. Should I leave the ceiling light on for progressively fewer hours each night to get them to total darkness?? AND if so, should I back off on the early morning end or the early evening end??? Like, off at 5 am, off at 4 am, off at 3 am, off at 2am, off at 1am, etc until it's off 9 pm then off for good???????? Thanks ONCE again!! You all are THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!
