Can a fully feathered 9 week old chick survive a 35 degree night OK without any heat source?
Fully feathered, yep sure can.
Good to know
Quote:no worries,their down coat is nice and full by then. They'll fluff their feathers and trap their own body heat in. Wish we could do that sometimes. Will
I have a few 12 week old ones in the barn and it has been down to 10 degrees. Just make sure you have at least 10 chickens in the coop so they can cuddle up with one another.
35 degrees should not be a problem. I have babies in the nursery that endure this, but there is no drafts either.
