WATCH THE POULTS TO DETERMINE IF THE BROODER IS TOO COLD OR TOO HOT

If the weather is warm during the brooding period, heat may be shut down during the dayafter the first week. Heat during the evening hours will be required for a longer period. After the first week or so, experienced poultrymen can watch the poults and tell whether they are comfortable or not.
