So my hubby made an outside brooder for my new chicks. Only one problem with the light on its to hot. I had one bantam who is 1 week older than the rest of my chicks (1 day olds) who was laying on his side panting.

So now they are in the garage with a 2 cardboard boxes taped together so they can get away from the light if they need to.

13 Rhode Island reds pullets (10 are my nephews)
3 salmon faverolle (s/r)
2 Americana pullets
2 assorted bantams (s/r) (1 is a week old)

Dimmer switches work

Great with heat lamps ! I also have a few outdoor brooders that we use in the middle of December. Their insulated and have screened in fronts with plexi glass that slides over it. We always have it open a bit to provide air flow and have the heat lamps on low but during the day now I don't even turn them on and my chicks are 2 weeks. Perfectly fine as long as it stays above 70
