I've heard that silkies can be a little less cold hardy. She's 8 weeks old and fully feathered, but temps hit low of 52 at night. Should she be brought inside until further notice, or will she be fine? She seems perfectly happy but the rest of the family is worried.

My rule of thumb is that the temps not fluctuate more than 30 degrees a day. So 52 is fine as long as it's not 92 during the day. I don't really have a deadline for when they are too old for this...usually just anytime it happens the first spring. By fall I don't worry about it anymore.
