I'm a total novice, but we're having tons of fun. We moved our 6 week old pullets into their new coop last night. Although I'm a little nervous about the unpredictable upstate NY spring weather, they seemed to thrive through the night and love their new space and extra perches! Holding my breathe that the weather stays warm :/

We'll see!

If you are worried about the weather, you can always use a broody light (securely fastened) and hung so it only warms part of the coop. That way chicks can move under it or away from it depending on their comfort Zone.
