    So I moved my chicks (4 weeks old) out to their coop today. We still have the premier 1 heat plate in there. It says a low of 24 tonite:( They have been in a 40-50 degree garage since we got them and I take them out for at least an hour a day no matter how cold.

    I am SO sick of this weather. It snowed last week. Ridiculous. From here on out it's in the 50's during the day and high 30's at night. Do you think they will be ok tonite? They do have the heat plate.....

    Yes they will be just fine. Wean them off the heat plate by week 5.
