    I have 8- 9 week olds in the coop that I have been letting play in the run all week. It has been in the 60's all week and they enjoy it. It is supposed to be in the upper 40's for the next couple days here. Is it safe to let them out? They return to the coop at dark and I then lock them up. There is a 100 watt heat lamp in the coop just in case it gets to cold. If I let them out and they get cold will they return to the coop for heat? After seeing them enjoy themselves all week I hate to keep them locked up for the next couple days. What do you folks think. John
  2. Let them out. They'll be fine. That's my thought.
