    I moved my chicks outside last night, there are 16 of them. It dropped down into the 40's last night and it was reading 60 in the coop this morning. Today the temp is suppose to drop again and only be in the 30's tomorrow. Are they going to be OK out there? They have about 2 inches of pine bedding on the floor of the coop….. I think I am being a nervous nellie.

    I didnt put in there that they are 5 weeks old and appear to be fully feathered. I would just hate to do anything to hurt them when I worked so hard to ensure they were healthy :)

    Yeah they'll be fine don't fret. The longest i would keep them in is 2 weeks unless it was below 10 degrees or something
