i have a Showgirl, Lt. Ohura, raising 6 baby silkies and showgirls. They will be 2 weeks old this coming Saturday. Our weather had been quite warm, into the hundreds, so i had them in a hutch on our back patio. Now the weather has turned suddenly cold. It's in the 70's during the day and then down to 50 or so at night. i moved the hutch into our shed so they wouldn't have to deal with cold winds. But the shed isn't insulated so not substantially warmer than outside. This morning the thermometer showed 50 degrees inside the shed. i think we may be dipping into the high forties sometime this week. The chicks don't seem in any distress, but i'm wondering if i need to be putting a heat lamp on the hutch. They have mom to snuggle under, but they can't do it when she's up and scratching around. Just wondered what others would do. Normally i have my babies in a back room under a heat lamp until they're 6-8 weeks. Just not sure if they need the heat when they have mom.
