Chick Tip: Adjust temperatures as chicks grow.   Hang a heat lamp in the center of a brooder, about 20 inches above the litter, with 2.5 - 3 feet between the lamp and the guard walls. The temperature under the heat lamp should be 95 degrees Fahrenheit and adequate room in the brooder should be available for the chicks to get out from under the heater if they get too hot. After week one, gradually reduce heat by 5 degrees Fahrenheit each week until reaching a minimum of 55 degrees.
