    Long story short I am down to 1 chicken. Our coop needs a lot of repairs so she is temporarily living in our shed. Since she is all by herself, should I put a heat lamp on for her over night? It has been getting down in the 40's and 50's at night. Thanks!

    No, 40s to 50s is totally comfortable to them. But get her some friends, they hate to be alone.
