    I moved my 5 BO chicks to their big girl/boy coop a few nights ago. They are about a month old I think, and all fully feathered except my suspected roo who still has downy parts. Their heat light burnt out and it will be a few days until I can get to the store to get another. I have a regular 100watt bulb in there now. They've been outside during the days a week now, just staying out in their coop at night a few days and it's chilly at night. I don't want to shock them but their lil coop seems really bright out there all night. Should I keep it on or shut it off?
