    Hi every one , my silkie baby's are 4 weeks and a half old and was wondering when i should remove their heat lamp, i keep them in a brooder in my room and the temp in my room is between 75 and 80. also when would it be a good time to put them out in their coop? we are in Phx AZ and its really hot out, the temp gets up to 110 today . any advise would be gratefull thank you [​IMG]

    You could turn it off for a few hours a day.. If they huddle together, they are cold
    If you want to adjust them to the outdoor temps you could set them out in the morning and when it starts getting really hot bring them in.. Extend the time a little longer each time
