Will 1.5 month old chicks be okay during chilly 60 degree night outside?

    I just finished by coop, well, really just the run and have put the chicks inside it all day today. I don't have roof on the coop yet but I want to know if 60 degree temperature for 6 birds almost fully feathered (except their heads) would be okay "cuddling" together?

    Predators are not an issue. This is strictly a temperature concern.

    Any thoughts or should I run outside to get them now???

    It doesn't have any protection from wind and rain...probably they would be fine. If the low is 60 and it isn't going to rain and you have more than a couple of birds they will be fine. If all of those things are not true then go and get them.

    Thanks for the reply. They were cuddling overnight and seem very happy this morning. All is good.
