    I have a mini coop in an unheated garage with a bantam SLW sitting on five regular size eggs. This is my first time. I am in Wisconsin where the temp dips. Should I add a heater or will she be okay?

    I have one week old chicks outside in a garage with only a heat lamp. They are fine.

    You do not need additional heat.
