I have 3 week old chicks in the garage, only three of them. They've been on a heat lamp this whole time, although I've raised it up quite a bit last week. I need to get them outside soon, and I know I can't just throw them out when it's in the 30's at night. I'm thinking about shutting off the heat lamp during the day to hopefully encourage them to feather out a bit more, and then taking it away from them in about a week. It probably dips into the 40's at night in the garage, but I need to prepare them for outdoor life. Is it possible to do that with such young ones at the beginning of winter? I don't keep a heat lamp in the main coop, but I'm pretty sure they'll be in the run with out a coop for at least a week...maybe two depending on how my adult girls react to them. (they'll have a covered dog crate for shelter) Any thoughts?
