Chick update, week 3
three and a half weeks old, our Dark
Cornish chicks are
mostly feathered and I'm considering turning off their brood
light. Mark's insulated
brooder box has
worked perfectly for the last week, allowing us to downgrade to a lower
wattage light while the chicks stay just as warm, and I'm wishing we'd
created an insulated section like this from the start. It gives
our chicks a lot more freedom to choose their favorite
temperature. They can loll in the encapsulated heat, or walk just
a few inches away and cool down while scratching and leaping.
