    I have 5 wk old chicks and our temps are getting down in the 30's. How can I move my chicks outside??? They are getting really dusty. I have older hens and their house is on 4x4's about 3' off the ground. What if we enclose the underneath area and incorporate a smaller house for the chicks? Would it be warm enough for them? Right now they are in the garage and doing good with a 60 watt light. This also would give them the opportunity to be introduced to each other.
