You can probably go to the 75 watt this week and forget about it altogether the next week. They are usually almost fully feathered at 5 weeks.

Mine are 5 weeks and I took out the heat lamp this past week. They're doing fine and I'm in Mass so I guess we're having similar weather. The forecast for the end of the week looks warm if you want to wait until then.
