6 Week Old Chicks Not Returning to Coop at Dusk - Page 2

post #11 of 14

I've had 6 week old's not return to the coop from the run. Baiting them in seems to work 99% of the time. Older chicks will tend to go in when they want :idunno

Is 45 degrees too cold for 6 week old chicks?  They have been out for a week but tonight is the first night this cold.  I know some of you are laughing that 45 is cold but this is Florida! :cool:  There are 17 of them and they huddle every night.

They huddle at night regardless of temperature.

I had 4 roosters in a building that would sleep in a pile on the stack of feed bins.
