    At what age can you put Australorpes in a garage with no heat lamp. Temps can get down to the 40s

    Uhh I'm not an expert but I think.6-8 weeks.or something like that. As long as they are fully feathers any can snuggle with each other then they should be fine.

    Yup. 7 weeks for almost all breeds. Do use week 5 to lower the temps a bit, as this helps in transition. Week 6, lower temps again to further assist the transition period. By week 7, most breeds are full capable of living comfortably apart from any added heat. They actually prefer it.
