    I actually just moved my chicks that are two weeks old out to the coop brooder today. They have their heat lamp of course and the brooder is draft free.

    I would make sure that you just section off a part of the coop to be sure that they stay under the heat lamp and be sure the area is free of any drafts. Then they should be just fine. [​IMG]
