    Hello!
    So we have an enclosed back patio. It is getting between 55/60 degrees during the day and going do to the mid 30 low 40 at night. Will these chicks be ok on the patio with the heat lamp at night? The ones in the clear tote have mostly all feathers. The smaller totes it what I'm more concerned about.

    Thank you

    Yes the ones in the clear tote are 5 weeks tomorrow. The other totebare 5 weeks tomorrow. It has been super cold here like 15 degrees at night and I wasn't ready to integrate them with the other chickens I have yet

    This is what I have used with all the others I have had they had no issues. Do you think they will be ok with it going down to 30 degrees at night? I plan to start integrating them in with the other chickens this weekend. The bigger 6 at least

    30 degrees is fine, especially if they are feathered out.
