    It's kinda hard to see with the red light, but that does appear to be a little cockerel.

    10 weeks old? I can't see much with that light, but it does look like a cockerel. Why are they still under heat if their 10 weeks?

    Do you not use a heat lamp for 10 week old chickens in 40 degree weather at night?

    Meh probably not. They're fully feathered and as long as they have been gradually transitioned off of heat even at 40F I'd say by 10 weeks they're good to go.

    Agree with the above. At this age, I wouldn’t. But do it gradually.
