    I found my beautiful Partridge Silkie dead today and it was very sad. The problem is she has 4 babies she has been taking care of. They are 1 month and feathered. Wondering if they will be OK or do I need to take out a heat lamp? Also need to watch that the other chickens wont be harassing them too much. Any opinions would be great. Thanks.[​IMG]:hit

    One month sounds a little young - you may want to fire up the heat lamp. I think the temp should be around 80 for them at this point, but someone else may be able to chime in at this point.
