They should be fine if they're fully feathered. As long as your coop isn't drafty, they should be OK.

Unless it is very cold where you are, I say go for it. Mine went outside without a heat lamp at 4.5 weeks and they aren't even in an enclosed building. The walls are just wire. I check on them frequently and they have shown no signs of distress or illness. They have been in temperatures ranging from the 50s to the 90s without issue.
