the chicks are in the coop at night now. it's draft free. they are probably 7-8 wks & pretty well feathered. will they be ok without a heat source when the temp drops to mid 30s tomorrow night?

They should be fine. My 7ish week olds have been out for a week now and last week there was a bit of frost in the morning. They were up and chipper first thing. Their house is insulated, they have a bunch of straw, and the door is closed at night. I guess it's up to you

thanks katherinep. I think I will not put heat in there. heat always worries me & I came to a hair's breadth of starting a fire in my barn this year because of heat.
