    I put the 4 week chickens out in the pen. I have a heat lamp in roost and can keep temps nice and warm. but it is going to get cold again and i might have to close door to the run over night. will i have to move water and food in to the roost or just water? what temp should i be shooting for at night 70? please help. Thank you.

    I'd move just the water in, we don't usually give our chickens out in the coop anything to eat nights. Gets them used to only being fed twice a day anyway.
    That's just how we do it though.

    As for temps, I gathered that you're probably aiming for 80. I'm not good with farenheit, or chick temperature. :lol:
