@muddy75 You laugh but I think its dropping down in the 30s tonight.
That is extremely cold for us.

I won't be moving my freshly hatched babies out until they are a week old.
Amen!!! Kiki, if your not from Texas and particularly if your not in South Texas, you won't understand that if it's 50°F, that's freezing for us!!! :lau

So far it is dry, Saturday and Sunday was wet.
it’s the wet + cold that is always the scariest for me.....we’ve had a few days already that dipped below freezing but no one was sopping wet beforehand. I still don’t understand why some of my quail refuse to go into or under shelter when it’s like this 🤦‍♀️ i’m planning to send DH out one more time to check the temperatures in the new section.

I’m in FL and we are getting a freeze warning for tomorrow night and it’s getting into the higher 30’s tonight. I know chickens are pretty hearty but I still worry. I have an open style coop so I tarped what I could and I think they will be fine.
