How To Raise Chickens Without A Heat Lamp
How do you raise chicks without a heat lamp? Chickens have been reproducing for centuries without heat lamps, so the best thing to do is to copy nature as closely as possible, providing warmth to the eggs and chicks in other ways before you develop a brood of mother hens suited exactly to this purpose.
When just starting out raising baby chicks, the amount of information you’ll find on raising them with a heat lamp can make the concept of doing without one feel impossible.
Dry shavings – and a LOT of them – are needed to allow your chicks a comfortable bed and something to burrow into.
Just like pets, chicks like to snuggle together in the cold. Order enough chicks that they can huddle together to keep each other warm (think of the penguins on the nature shows).
