    Chicks are a couple days shy of 7 weeks... Low temps at night are 38... Too cold? Also when i first move them to the coop, do they need to be locked in there for a couple days? Or is it okay to allow them in the attached run during the day?? I know they need to get used to their 'home'... Thank you!!

    I let mine go outside if they want, just expect to have to round them up. Your chicks should be okay, they should pile, just keep the drafts down.
