    I'm up in Canada and took my chicks off the light at 4 weeks, that was about a week ago now, maybe a little more. Your chicks will be fine

    38-45 degrees until the last two nights, now it's staying in the upper sixty range, believe me they will be fine:>) At four weeks they can snuggle together for warmth.
