It's -5C (23F), even with the heat lamp on in the partly-insulated coop my two baby silkies looked miserably cold. Our new young pullet that's in the sectioned-off portion of the coop with them has been blocking their access to food and water all day, they're terrified of her (she needs to be isolated from the flock as they were tearing her feather off). I have nowhere else to put her. So hubby and I brought the babies into the house and put them in a room downstairs with the heat on and put them in a small wicker hamper with a towel on the bottom, a small bowl of water and some food. The hamper has a lid and air flows through. Um, what do we do now? I was thinking of buying a dog crate for them so they can stay in the house for a couple of weeks, until they get some more feathers grown in and put on some weight. Let them have some free time in the room a couple hours a day? How much space do growing chicks need? Any special care? When will they be strong enough to rejoin the coop? It's not going to get any warmer before spring, on the contrary Help!
