    With those temps they could stay outside and as long as there fully fewthered or almost feathered they can stay outside mine were probably about 2-3 months old and they stayed ouside when it got down in the 30s and they were all fine hope this helps

    They should be fine without the food and water and make sure they still have ventilation but I would close the door

    Really depends on how much heat you've kept them under/in.
    Drastic changes can be hard on them...those night temps shown are pretty cold.
