    I have 11 week old chicks that I have just introduced to the coop. They cannot use the ladder to climb into the sheltered part of the coop yet. I have a large dog kennel witha light on in it. They sleep in there at night. If temps drop into the upper 30s will they be o.k.

    At eleven weeks they have their full coat of feathers on. They should be good in there. They'll bunch up and keep help keep each other warm.
