Why won't my 10 week old chicks go into their coop without a light on?

They probably still like the heat from the light bulb. They will grow out of it in a few more weeks.

Got rid of the heat lamp about 2 weeks ago and put in a normal light. Will they grow out of it or get use to it. If I turn it off they get stressed or camp outside.

I agree with firefighter. It's most likely the heat off the light bulb. No worries (:

They're probably paranoid and confused to why there isn't a light anymore.
