    That "organ" between the eyes is called a 'comb'. All chickens, male and female, have one. I would suggest doing some research on chickens in general [​IMG]

    Quote:By "organ looking skin" I'm assuming you mean the comb, and most likely a walnut, pea, or rose comb. . . ?

    You came to the right place! Post some pics. Research breeds, and chicken coops. They'll be fine outside as long as they have shelter. I'm always pushing the "Doghouse coop". Check Craigslist for stuff like this:

    Impossible to tell what you have from your description. Pictures are needed.
    Do you have any idea how old the chickens are? Do they look like they have a full coat of feathers? or do they still have some fluff?
    If they aren't fully feathered, they need to be in a brooder (just a big box basically that they live in until big enough to go outside) with heat and chick crumbles and water.
    If they are fully feathered they can live outside with the shelter of a coop of some sort.
