I've got the tarp over these guys now, but they're pretty wet and look kind of cold. Forecast says rain and lows in the high 40s the rest of the week.

Are they OK with the tarp (ground is pretty wet right now) or should I bring them in somewhere? They're pretty much completely feathered, and my laying hens seem fine in this weather, but I'd really rather these guys not die before I have the chance to process them.

If the ground is wet under mine, I will put some hay or straw in the tractor for them to get on. If they are dry, then the cold doesn't seem to bother them.
