Recommended Brooding Duration for Chicks with Temperature Requirement

Brooding is usually done between the first four (4) weeks of the chick’s life. At the first week, you have to maintain them at a temperature of 32C-34C, 30C-32C at the 2nd week and 28C-30C at the 3rd week.

After four (4) weeks, their feathers are enough as a source of heat. Brooding them beyond 4weeks is undesirable and could be stressful for the birds.
