    There are more factors than just temperature. Humidity, baromatric pressure, precipitation, wind, sun etc.

    My flock will be out soaking up the sun when it is zero out, but they also stay off snow. Bottom line... the chickens will know. Leave the pop door open and you will soon get a handle on their likes and dislikes.
