When will I stop worrying about the chicks? I check on the brooder about a thousand times a day. I brought home a new baby 2 days ago and I'm losing sleep over the brooder temp. I want it warm enough for Annabelle(6 days old today), but not too warm for the 4 week olds. At least the 4 week olds are helping the baby. They take their turns to lay by her. Also, to my surprise, the 4 week olds are not stepping on the baby. They will walk around her or jump over her.
