    I just put my 2 11week old girls outside Saturday, it was 79, now Tuesday is going to get down to 42 tonight. I have been putting them in the coop at night and closing the door. Will they be OK with out a heat source? Thinking they are old enough, fully feather but I am worried.

    They would have been okay without a heat source over six weeks ago.

    They will be just fine. I have chicks that are about that same age they have been in the coop and outside run for a week now, and are doing just great.
