Do I need the heat lamp in the coop?

We are going to move our girls to the coop this weekend. I was just wondering if I should put the heat lamp out there during the night. We are only getting down to the upper 30's one night and the rest are about mid 40's to mid 50's the rest of the forecasted week. They are about 5-6 weeks old and appear to be feathered. I'm not sure though since they are my first chickens!

Tonight is my babies night in the coop with the rest of the flock, we're going down to 30 tonight. I gave them a big area of fluffy hay to sleep to help keep them warm. They're about 6-8 weeks old. I don't use heat lamps or lights out in the coop.
