    1 of my girls was to stubarn to stay with her sisters when I moved her to the roost I put her next to her friends too, but she just moved back to where she was she is healthy. Will Fluff move if she gets to cold????

    I have one like that, too. Even during sudden cold snaps (a surprise for Southern AZ) she prefers her own space. All the others are clumped together on the roost, but she goes as far to the other side as possible, near the cold wall! Seems to survive just fine.

    When it is very cold my hens huddle together. The warmer it gets, the farther they spread apart. I can watch them from my night vision cam that is in the coop. I don't really need a thermometer. If it's 30 degrees or less they smoosh together.
