    I just put my 5 week olds out in the coop yesterday- it was low 50"s and sunny yesterday and got down to 28* over night, they did great as far as I can tell and they didnt really use the heat source they have ( its an ecoglow radiant brooder)

    I had been keeping the room they were in at close to 60* for the past week and heat only available in the dark hours.

    Good luck [​IMG]
