I would like to move my pullets outside in two to three more weeks when they are 4-5 weeks old. What is the coolest nighttime temperature they should be able to tolerate without having to heat the coop? Daytime temps should be 65-75 degrees still by then. There will be 10 of them roosting together in a coop that is draft-free. Thanks!

If they look well feathered they should be fine. I'd put down a good layer of litter so they can cuddle down into it if they want. I'd also start acclimating them to the outdoors now, if you aren't already doing this.
