UPDATE: It's almost 11:00 and I just went to check on the chicks. It is currently 60 degrees outside and tonight's low is supposed to be 55. 5 of the chicks were huddled in one corner away from the heat lamp. 2 were under the heat lamp and one was panting. The other was away from the heat lamp alone and it's wings were spread out like it was too warm so I think they will be fine. I'll check on them once again before I go to bed though ;-) I'm so tempted to let the chicks out overnight even though I've never done it this early. They are so overcrowded in the indoor cage and my house STINKS!! I bought too many chicks and even cleaning the cage daily doesn't help. I have 8 blue and splash Orpington chicks that are only half feathered. They have been outside during the day for the past 2 days since the temp has been around 80. I set them up outside with a heat lamp, getting ready for being outdoors full time and I'm finding myself wanting to hurry up the process LOL!! Is it too early, even with deep shavings for bedding and a heat lamp if it's supposed to be in the low 50's tonight?
