So i'm a new chick mommy and i have 6 chicks that hatched 10/14. Man they grow fast and they are eating machines. Anyways i live in Ohio and i bought from a breeder only an our drive away in the hopes of having birds that are better adapted to Ohio weather and i chose breeds that are all very winter hardy(egg layers, 2 golden sex links, 1 bared rock, 1 buff brahma, and 2 mystery chicks). When should i start exposing them to the weather/dropping their brood temps. There seems to be so much differing opinions and i want to get them the best start on life with out keeping them in my house over winter. Currently they are in the house in a spare room in a aquarium but i think in another week they are going to be too big for the tank. I was thinking of building a bigger brooder in the garage but it is unheated and the temps would fluctuate a bit every time i enter because i would have to open the garage door to check on them. Temperatures are currently averaging in the 50's to high 60's love these crazy little fuzz butts. love watching them grow. they are just starting to get tail feathers! Thank you for any help and advice you guys can give me.
