    So I have some 7 week olds and it's gonna be around freezing tonight, what should I do? I can put some hay in the pen and I have a light, is that enough? Thanks!

    What have you been doing with them for the last 2 weeks? I hope they have been weaned off the light. If so, just give them some extra bedding. They will be fine. By the time they are fully feathered (usually 4 - 5 weeks) they should be fine for all temps.

    Ok, thanks. I only have the light on when the temp is low.
