I apologize if this is a stupid or repeat question, but I'm a newbie to "chickening". I live in NNY and it is around 40-50 deg during the day (but usually rainy and windy), and 30-40 deg at night. My barred rocks are 8 wks old and fully feathered. I have been keeping them in the garage in a lg box and I would like to move them to the outside coopbecause they are getting big and crowded and are pretty messy. My husband built a "chicken hut" that is a 5x6x2ft box up on stilts with a little run going up to the entrance. 3 of the sides are coveredwith plywood, and one side is just covered with a wire mesh. The floor is also wire mesh. I was thinking I would lay some straw across the floor to insulate it a little and stack small staw bales against the wire mesh wall to keep the wind out until it warms up a little more here. It is still pretty chilly here, but I know that barred rocks are supposed to be pretty cold hardy. Any thoughts would be greatly apprectiated .
