4 week old duccle- outside wth heat lamp in 39 degrees ok?

post #1 of 4

I have a four week old duccle who I moved outside two days ago. Now it's a cold snap to 39 tonight! She has a heat lamp, also two bantam Cochins. Will they be ok? In with 7 five week old chicks and an 8 week old game pullet.

Please update us but my guess is that she did fine. She might or might not be ready to handle those temperatures on her own but she’s not far away. With just a little heat I bet she did fine.

 I grow a little impatient when people seem to think that they are unique in the world. Of course they are. Just like everyone else.
