I had a hen go broody during the icestorm this year - she hatched out 3 of 8 eggs, even with the cold weather.

I would want to wait for a little warmer temps, but it might not be too bad this time of year. Cold they can handle better than snow or ice/rain. I guess it depends on if your chickens freerange or are in a run/coop.
