    You can put chicks anywhere it is draft free with a heat lamp.

    Even when temps are freezing and in the single digits at night?? Hopefully our freak cold blast will be over in a month!

    As long as the brooder is draft free or has even just a draft free heated area, they should be fine. Make sure the water doesn't freeze solid and the heat stays on.

    That's good to know. I just put my 6-7 week old chicks out in the draft free coop with a heat lamp. I think they'll be okay too.
