    They'll be fine. If they are feathered out they'll make their own heat. If you were looking at a hard frost, under 30 degrees, I'd be more concerned. My 5 day old chicks were out today in 60 degrees getting a tan!

    Absolutely! You have no worries! Temperature is mild, and your chicks are fully insulated against losing any precious body heat. They will do splendidly!
