Ok, so I introduced my little ones to their coop on saturday, after living in a warm room , in an aquarium, and wouldn't you know, it was cold saturday night- so I was concerned with the warmth of my babies- I had an old 25watt green party bulb- I didn't want to keep them awake, just generate some heat, so I guess my question is, am I doing more harm then good with a green light?

How many weeks old are they? They should be at least around 7 weeks to put them outside. Green bulb is no problem. Just put it very close so they can benefit from the heat. 25 watts is not much. red light might be better, but i haven't heard green is bad.
