    You may put the heat lamp out but i recommend they should be 3 weeks or 4 to be 100% safe, just have a spot where they can cool down and one spot where’s the heat lamp is.

    Ok thanks so Much. I will put them in a larger brooder due to space restrictions and keep the lamp on till they are 4 weeks old as recommended. Thanks so much!!!!
