Need advice about moving guinea keets

    Hi there! We've got 6 week old guinea keets that are currently "free ranging" in the basement... which they love, but isn't ideal for the rest of us. The basement temp is between 65 one 70, the birds haven't had a heat lamp for over a week and they are all feathered out. We'd like to start transitioning them to an outside coop, but we're in WI and tonight's temp is already down in the 20's! Any advice on the best way to do this? I'd rather not run a heat lamp all winter (too dangerous and we lose power during the big storms) if it can be helped. THANKS!
