I do not know about the temp part-as it is my first year with Silkies....and I will be interested to know how they will fair with our mild winters here in NC--but, I do know that Silkies are not the best bird to free range from what I have seen-and heard.

Due to their feathered heads/ limited vision they cannot see as well as others and become easy victims for predators.

Enjoy your silkies!
