    The last few days have warmed up alot , so i took my 6 week old rir and slw chicks in the barn in a little boarded in area with a heat lamp . I left the light on all night last night and the temp. was 70 in the mornig . I put them out around four this afternoon everything was good but now its 930 pm and no power , the power company said it would a couple hours before powers back on . Its saposed to drop below or around frezing bettween 2 am and 6 am i worried that they might die or get sick sence theyve never been out of my basement today . Im not sure if i should bring them back into the house or leave them out and hope the power comes back on

    They should be good at 44, at about 15, 20 would be time to bring them in.

    If they are spread out they must not be cold yet. I'd bring them in just though. No sence in waiting until midnight.
