Any dramatic drop from what they're used to. It takes a couple days to acclimate just like us.
There's no single temp. Acclimated, they'll still come out at -20F or lower.
If it has been 70F and suddenly drops to 20 they may be unwilling to come out.
Welcome to BYC! We're glad to have you.
I don't think that there is a definite temperature when chickens will stop coming out of their coop. As ChickenCanoe said, this may only happen if there is a sudden drop in temperature. My chickens, for example, still come out when it is 0 degrees outside.
Glad you joined us!
X2 on ChickenCanoe and Wyandottes7's advice.
I always give my birds the choice to go out if they want. Temp doesn't seem to matter so much as wind or wet.
Wind and blowing snow will keep mine inside. However, I have a wind break in my run, so that helps. But mine, even the 2 week old chicks were out a couple of weeks ago in 15-18 below.
