    If they are full feathered out, they will probably be OK. They will huddle together and keep each other warm. If you have concerns because your birds are young, could you hang a heat lamp at night and see if they even want it? If they don't need any heat, they will stay away from it.

    I live in northern Minnesota and I had my chicks under heat lamps until they were 8 weeks old. Then the temp was up into the 50F's and they had full feathers and no longer wanted any heat lamp, so I took them out.
