Is a red lamp needed in these high temperatures?

I have a couple of 3 week old chicks under heat and Iím wondering do the chicks really need the heat in these high temperatures ?

I just took mine away from heat they are around 3 weeks old. I turned off the lamp in the day time for a few days first and back on at night just to get them used to no heat. Theyíre in a shed still but with no lamp and are doing fine
