    I've done that before, and all seemed fine. I always consider in comparison to a hen, really - If they're left without heat exposure for over a minute, they're fine - If they are not turned a day early from lockdown, they're fine - If the chicks aren't constantly under heat, they're certainly fine! I've had so many chicks out in 39 degree weather with their broody mom and they didn't complain one bit - They were runnin' around like it was a warm summer day.
