    I live in Indiana. I discovered tonight that I have chickens outside, who must have gotten out but won't go back in. Can it get too cold out for them? they are all 5 1/2 month old
    columbian wyandottes. Their feed and water are in the barn.

    I'd be a bit worried about dampness if it rains/snows, etc. I might be inclined to try to lure them back and put them in the coop. Mine always did it on their own, though.

    Good luck.

    I would shoo them back in. If not for the weather, do it for predators. They will eat your chickens if left outside!
