    The plastic tub in my workroom (which is normally a cooler room) holds five, two-week old chicks. I turned the heat light off because they were laying down at the far end of the tub, away from the lamp. Thermometer read 90 deg.

    Good move - they should be around 80/85 or so by now...that's where ours are (and are doing fine) and they are the same age.
