im letting one of my broody silkies hatch two eggs she's been sitting on. I live in Massachusetts and this winter has been pretty mild, no snow, warmest winter yet. rarely goes below freezing. Plus my chickens have a heated coop, so you think they'll be okay? i have one silkie roo and 6 silkie hens crammed in a little coop until i get home to let them free range, plus they free range all weekend long.. can the chicks and mama stay in the coop, or do i have to move them and the coop heater to my old rabbit hutch? im just afraid they will either freeze or be pecked to death by the other hens.
