    I wish it was 65 degrees tonight! It's in the low 30's for us [​IMG] I had to bring in all my flats of flowers [​IMG]

    We have our chicks out in their chicken coop since last week. We have a heat lamp in there for tonight, so I think your chicks should be fine. [​IMG]

    Could you please send us your weather? [​IMG]

    hmm, so they are 3 weeks old? 95 degrees the first week, 90 the second week, 85 the third week.......... so they should be at 85 or 80 degress this week
    so 65 sounds a little cold unless they are fully feathered out
    I have 3 week old chicks and they have some feathers but not all and they are smack dab under the light that is set to 80 degrees as of this weekend.
    hope they do ok
