    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 :)
