I have read tons on here that they will be fine in the cold, so I have not coddled them in the least in regard to the cooler weather. I think their fuzzy butts are a tad fuzzier. But here my silly girls are out ranging around in 20 mph wind, 40 degree weather spitting rain. They haven't a care in the world. I however am freezing my tush off going out to check on them. when the wind hits their backside it looks like their skirts are lifting. It will get much colder, but I have resisted the urge to do anything but keep a breeze off them in the coop (plenty of dry well ventilated space for them) but now they have free reign and they choose to be cold. Last night I went out to close everything up and slipped my hand between several of the girls as they roost side by side, it is better than a heated blanket. Will get to 27 briefly overnight, I have faith they will do well. Thanks for all the great advice! I really am not worried for them.
