I am still new to raising chickens and need some temperature advice.
So I have 4, 6 week old girls - a variety of breeds. They moved into their coop a week ago when temps were in the 80's during the day and 60's at night. We are having a weird cold snap, and it is now in the 60's during the day and 40's at night.
I moved them back into their brooder last night and put them in the garage as it was storming too. It's only 42 now (8:00 a.m.), but they look so cramped in their brooder, that i don't feel I can leave them there all day while I am at work.
Is it ok to put them back in their outside coop for the day? Can they play in their run? Both the coop and the run are attached. But only one has really mastered getting up into the coop from the run, so I am afraid to let them free range for the day with it being so cold and breezy.
Any advice would be much appreciated!
