Just a question for those who have lost a chick dying to cold weather... I put my chicks out in the coop last night they are 5 1/2 weeks and seem fine.. they have an ecoglow to huddle under if needed. The coop is draft free and has two windows that let in sunlight late morning and all afternoon-they are sunbathing and seem to love it and also did this when they were in the house near the window. Now I am reading here and second guessing myself... I just a read where someone had 4 week old chicks out in winter and they were appeared fine then died after a week. How a I to tell if they are ok, they are not huddling during the day but they did last night when sun set, which is what they did indoors. Would they let me know if there is a problem by their behaviour or could they suddenly succumb to cold without warning? Sorry worried mother "hen" here- in my mind putting them out now was a good idea since they have nearly all their feathers and the longer I wait the colder it's going to get.
