    I have two Ameraucana pullets, born around the end of Feb. They have been getting used to being outdoors and doing quite well. However, we're supposed to get down to 33 within the next couple of nights. Do you folks think that's too cold for them? They huddle up together, but they're still scared of my four hens, so they won't huddle up with them to stay warm.

    Thanks!

    Yes that is too cold for them. Do you have a lamp you can put over them tonight?
