This was buried in my other thread so I thought I'd haul it out into the sunshine. I had turned on their heat lamp, the temp had gone down to 70 and I was afraid they would be too cold, they're only 12 days old yet. It quickly went up over 75. Was this sudden increase in heat the cause of the feather picking (one buff orp has an awfully red, plucked butt that has been covered in Vicks now)? Do they need to be kept that warm still? They didn't seem to be complaining about a lack of heat, it was just their nervous nellie mother who thought she knew better. Advice?
