Hello, we recently got our first chickens (three sussex pullets - not quite laying yet), and we are going to get 2 silkies as well. I just spoke with someone who would like to sell me 2 silkie hens, and they're about a year old. They were kept inside all last winter, and were kept outside over the summer. For the past month or so, they've been back inside with their chicks. If I purchase them, would it be OK to move them outside to the coop? It's starting to get cold here in Michigan (down into the 30s at night), and my coop isn't heated. I just don't know if they would have a problem with the cold since they've never been outside in it (do their bodies adapt to the warmer temperatures so that they wouldn't be prepared for the cold?). Thanks in advance for the advice!
