    As long as they are warm they will be fine.

    x2 As long as you provide a warm spot for them, they really do love being outside. I have a heating pad in one corner of the coop where they can go to warm up when they need to.

    Just a quick question though. Do you have adult chickens in the coop already? Then you would need to provide a safe space for your chicks to get away if the adults peck at them.
