This is my first time doing this so thank you for letting me join your community.
I recently bought 7 Barred Rocks and 7 Black Copper Marans! So far they are both doing great but at about 5 weeks they were outgrowing their brooder. During the nicer days (around 60F-70F) I would take them out to play and explore. While looking at the weather I saw that we were about to have a nice stretch with no rain and lots of sun. So I planned everything and put them out in the two coops I have. One for each breed. (We had some problems with the BR severely pecking the BCM) Right now they have been locked in the coop for three days and I plan on having them stay in a week. While I did anticipate bad storms and sun I didn't think about night time temperature. Last night it got down to 34F! I was really worried. I don't have a heat lamp! while the tempurature has gotten down around the mid 40s it had never been this close to freezing. This morning I went out to check on them and they were all contently cheeping and playing around!
Should I let them stay outside if they are doing fine in the weather or should I bring them back inside to the cramped brooder?
