In the Brooder
- Apr 23, 2014
We had a little cold snap yesterday and it's only supposed to be in the 60s today. Right now it's almost 50. I have 16 chicks who are 5 weeks old and mostly feathered out. Is it safe to let them out in the run in 50 degrees? I still keep a lamp on at night and turn it off during the day. I'm probably just being a baby about it. We've lost 5 chicks so far, 4 in the first 2 weeks. I'm just nervous because I don't want them to get too cold.
