9 week old silkies in coop

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I moved my Silkies (6 of them) to their outdoor coop this week.  It was over 70 degrees F today and 56 tonight.  The next few days it will be getting colder:  Friday (67/48), Saturday (52/34) and Sunday (41/34).  Do I need to move the chicks back in when the temp drops to 34 degrees F?

I put my silkies out at 6 weeks. Took the heat lamp away at 7 weeks. A few nights dipped down into low 30s they were fine. I made sure they all got locked inside the coop each night. They huddled together and i checked on them multiple times, they were nice and warm. I also had 6 smile.png
