So its late in the season and i'm a little confused by the mixed views on how long I should keep the heat lamp on my chicks. Ive read multiple places to who say to keep the chicks under the lamp for 24hrs a day in no hotter than 100 degrees, then I was told because its later in the season, and that they are in my guest room (it can get 70-85 degrees in general) to do 3hr intervals to start getting them used to being in the cold. I'm not sure of their age as I got them fromTSC, but I've kept a themoter in their brooter and even at 90 some are panting. So right now since the room is at 87 degrees (and I'm closely monitoring them because it's trigger my anxiety) I turned off the lamp to let them cool down a bit. They seem content right now, not huddled at all, they fell asleep. I'm just wondering at this point if anyone has some advice. I am watching them closely and paying attention to their body language, but I also don't want to make them sick by turning the light on and off.
