Might not be bad if the sun is shining and it isn't windy. I remember mine would hunker down to the ground when they got cold then I'd bring them back in to the brooder. I suppose you could go and see. Keep your eye out for cats though, little chicks are practically defenseless. It is so nice here right now it is hard to imagine cold.

I have some turkens like that. They are buff turkens and no your turken will not keep the stripe

I think yours is a buff colored turken or else it could be a red colored turken (I have white, columbian, red, buff and black turkens

Either way it is sure a cutie
