Too cold for my chicks?

    My chicks are five weeks old today. I'm looking to relocated the to the garage after someone(not sayin' who) dropped me a couple subtle hints they were becoming a little too odoriferous for her.

    I'm not sure about the temps. I'll have a couple heat lamps for them. Here's the forecast for the next week. Of course it could change. We could be down to 30's for highs in a week or less.


    Is it ok if they make the move?

    I just relocated my 5 week olds to the larger garage brooder box for the same reasons!!..They are doing just fine and I'm in WV where the temps are about the same this week as yours...... Just as long as they have a heatlamp and can get away from the heat if they need too they will be just fine...

    Thanks! I'm glad they can.

    One other question. How cold would it have to be before they couldn't be in the garage?:|
