    They should be fine. Mine are outside tonight without a light, but in a small low coop. They are close, but not piled up or anything. Its about 75 and they're about 5 weeks.

    Mine are outside and are doing fine without a light. Our temps have ranged between 60 and 80.

    They should be plenty fine. At four weeks you want temps. of 75 to 80 anyhow.
