    When can you move the chicks to their coop? They are going to be 3 weeks by the end of the week and it is in the high 70s -80 this week and probably going to be staying warm here since I live in Ga. maybe down into high 50s at pm . I could move a heat lamp out if needed. I have 12 btw. They are quickly outgrowing their brooder even though it's a large crate.

    Use a heat lamp at night and they will be fine.

    You won't need much heat or for long. I'd suggest using no more than 100W and keeping the lamp at one end of the coop, away from roosts. They'll be done with heat in a couple weeks and very glad to have more room to do chickeny stuff.
